I am on FLVS doing some testing and this question is killing me, since I am not feeling good, I need heeeeeeeelp. The question is. Cheyanne is saving for a car. The amount she has saved for the car, f(x), can be represented by the function f(x) = 65x + 750, where x is the number of weeks she has saved. Suppose 750 changed to 700. What does this mean in the context of the problem?

    well 750 is the y intercept for the linear equation... so in week 0 she has $750 in her bank account... so if this amount is reduced to $700 what effect will it have on her savings... that's what you are being asked

    Since the 750 in the equation is the initial amount she saved, when 750 becomes 700, it means the initial amount decreased from $750 to $700. For the second question: The point slope form of the equation of a line is y−y1=m(x−x1) where m = slope, and the point is (x1,y1) Now use the equation above, and just substitute the given values.

    it should be Changing 750 to 700 means the initial amount she saved decreased.
