## Jeans123 3 years ago A graph relates the amount of gas in the tank of your car to the distance you can drive. Why does the graph stop?

2. Jeans123

I put, that is the maximum amount of gallons that can be put into the car.

3. cwrw238

thats right

4. Jeans123

c. Why is only the first quadrant shown?

5. Jeans123

I put, Because you cannot have negative miles to the gallon or negative gallons of gas.

6. Jeans123

d. Would every point in the solution region be a solution? e. Write an inequality for the graph. f. What does the coefficient of x represent?

7. cwrw238

i can't fault that.... dead right

8. Jeans123

d. Yes because every point within the shaded part is part of the equation. e. Y=25x f. x represents the number of miles to the gallon the car get. These are my answers.

9. Jeans123

So C is right?

10. cwrw238

yes

11. Jeans123

What about d e and f because my teacher said that one or more were wrong.

12. cwrw238

d every point on the graph ( the line) will be a solution i can't see any shading

you said "that is the maximum amount of gallons that can be put into the car." for the first question

17. jim_thompson5910

so is the max amount 400 gallons or 16 gallons?
