I need help finding the y intercept:
David does landscaping for private homes and businesses. He charges $40.00 to travel to the site and then $40.00 per hour for his services. The equation y = 40 + 40x models the charge for his services y for any number of hours x.
a. Graph the equation. Describe your graph.
b. What is the slope of the line? What does the slope represent?
c. What is the yintercept of the line? What does the yintercept represent?
d. Julia paid David $240.00 for his services. How many hours did David work

Ok, then what does the slope represent? Is it the correlation between the number of hours he works and the amount he is paid?
