Ruth bought a piece of farm machinery valued at $50, 000. Over a period of 10 years, the machinery lost value at a constant rate. The graph below models this loss of value. Which statement most closely matches this relationship?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in science, its important to know the process almost more than the answer. when you, "which statements", it sounds like a multiple choice question. is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait, I think I understand you slightly. You already googled the answer, but wanna know how to get there. Awesome. Alright, important thing first is to determine the formula for this situation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Its a linear line, going down. Which means it has slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An equation for slope is y=mx+b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok and yes I admit I googled the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Substitute any 2 lines into y=mx+b, where (x,y) is a point on the line. Don't worry lots of children do it. I'm jsut glad you want to figure out the real process like real scientists actually do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's like grade 9 stuff. Did you guys already study slope of the line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nop that's why I want an explanation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That would be an explanation if you were in a higher grade.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Based on both visual perception and visually used data and its calculation, I got a difference answer. Where'd your teacher get his degree?
