Michael's father is giving him an interestfree loan for a car. Michael plans to give his father a $5000 down payment and pay $500 per month. The total amount paid can be represented by the linear function T = 500x + 5000 where T is the total paid to his father and x is the number of months. What would change the slope of the linear function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm well looking at the problem the thing that changes the slope is the thing multiplied by x. So in this case the slope would change if he changed his payments per month for example 250 instead of 500. will change the rise over the run. which is equal to slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if he paid his dad 1000 instead of 500 the payments would cause the slope by 2. It would be 2 times as stee
