Thomas is cycling from the school to the playground. The equation shows Thomas's distance (y), in miles, from the playground after x minutes: y = 14 − 4x What does the number 14 in the equation represent? The speed at which Thomas is cycling Thomas's distance from the playground when he begins cycling Thomas's distance from the school when he begins cycling The rate of change of Thomas's speed while cycling from school to the playground

    Why don't we evaluate it? You see, whenever a constant is added to a function an initial value is added, it is more formally known as the "y-intersection" and represents the value of y when x is zero. In other words, our "starting point". That implies, that thmoas had some distance from the school's playground when he started to move, all because: \[y=14-4(0)\] \[y=14\] So, that only means that he was 14 miles away when he began moving. Hence, the "14" represents his initial position.
