Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2average the strawberries processed per hour to get 326.3 lbs/hour thats you're slope y intercept = 0 because in 0 hours you process 0 strawberries. y = 326.3x I had more written but I pressed the back button and now i'm sad

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you divide 1445/4.5 to get the lbs/hour then you do that again with the second set of information...2320/7 that gives you some slope that we will average. (321.11 + 331.43) / 2 this gives us 326.3 which is the rate at which strawberries are processed, or, the slope.
