A science experiment begins with a metal at 100° Celsius. The following function describes the temperature change per minute: f(x) = 89x  100°. How will the graph of this function change if the metal is at 25° at the start of the experiment?
The line will shift vertically up by 125°.
The line will shift vertically up by 25°.
The line will shift vertically down by 125°.
The line will shift vertically down by 25°.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're actually not solving for anything. y = mx + b is slopeintercept form of a linear function. The function in your problem is written like that. m = slope b = yintercept. what number is in the "b" spot in your equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. so your yintercept just represents the starting temperature. what would the equation be for a starting temp of 25?
