A biologist created the following graph to show the relationship between the temperature of water (x), in degrees Celsius, and the number of insect larvae (y) in the water:
graph of y equals minus 2 times the square of x plus 20 times x plus 400
What does the yintercept of the graph represent?
There were 400 larvae at 0 degree Celsius.
There were no larvae at 400 degrees Celsius.
The original number of larvae in the water was 400.
The original temperature of the water was 400 degrees Celsius.
