You drive a car that holds 15 gallons of gasoline. Your car uses 0.03 gal per mi. Which equation best represents this information? y = 0.03x + 15 y = 0.03x - 15 y = -0.03x + 15 y = -0.03x - 15

Let y = gallons of gasoline Let x = number of miles y starts at 15 and then you subtract 0.03 gal. for each x.
so its the first one?
Does the first one include the subtraction I mentioned?

Other answers:

when x=0 then y=15 and with every minute y decreases by 0.03 , so u get y=15-0.03x
@CliffSedge u a mod
no but im using y=mx+b which means m=what could change which is .03 and then b=15 because it is your priginal so shouldnt it be y=.03x+15
@akash_809 does that matter?
@EmmaH do u get it
m is negative as y is decreasing
it cant b that because it is increasing because it increases as the cars goes
could you try to explain step by step please
what is slope of a line or any function y=f(x) is m=dy/dx i.e rate of change of y wrt x and here rate of change of y i.e fuel is negative w.r.t is it better
i know i must sound stupid but that doesnt make sense to me sorry
