So the question is asking you for a function with the unit of calories burned over time. When you multiply calories per hour time by time we get calories $$ \cfrac{calories}{hr}\times x~hrs=calories $$ So if your x-axis is time and your y axis is calories, the slope of your equation is calories per hour |dw:1433007309603:dw| So to get total calories, our rule (or function) is $$ \text{Total Cals}=\cfrac{420~cals}{hr}\times t $$ Where \(t\) is time righting the bicycle in hours. The other pieces of information are not important for determining the relationship between calories and time. Does this make sense?
