Sal's Sandwich Shop sells wraps and sandwiches as part of its lunch specials. The profit on every sandwich is $2 and the profit on every wrap is $3. Sal made a profit of $1,470 from lunch specials last month. The equation 2x + 3y = 1,470 represents Sal's profits last month, where x is the number of sandwich lunch specials sold and y is the number of wrap lunch specials sold.
Change the equation to slopeintercept form. Identify the slope and yintercept of the equation. Be sure to show all your work
Describe how you would graph this line using the slopeintercept methodBe sure to write usi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2x+3y=1470\] The first thing you need to do is rearrange the formula so only the Y is on the left hand side .All you need to do is do the opposite to what is given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So in this case you would start by subtracting 2x from the left hand side so ,so you hav eto minus 2x from both sides It should look like this \[3y = 2x + 1470\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you still have 3y instead of y so you need to divide both sides by 3 . So you need to divide 3x by 3,2x by 3 and 1470 by 3 It should look like this \[\frac{ 3y }{ 3}=\frac{ 2x }{ 3 }+\frac{ 1470 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now to graph this line you can find the x and y intercepts Let start with the y intercept To do this all you need to do is substitute the x for 0 to find y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y int x=0 \[y=(\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }\times0)+490\] y=490

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x intercept can be found when y = 0 \[0=\frac{ 2 }{ 3}x+ 490\] Then solve it like a linear equation So 0490 and then divide this by 2/3 It shoudld equal 735

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To graph this so can see that you need a big scale because of the numbers so a graph like the one below should suffice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The scale for the graph should be 1cm for 100 and then just plot the points On the y axis,plot it at 490 and on the x axis ,plot it at 735 and then draw a line between the two
