hint: total price = cost of boat + (price per hour)(number of hours)

21.25 = (slope) + (money you paid up front)

slope being the amount of money by each hour

I'm still confused 😞
ccswims
  • ccswims
ok, 21.25 = (slope) + your y intercept (the money you paid up front)
ccswims
  • ccswims
you paid $10 up front, right?

Yeah
ccswims
  • ccswims
you 21.25 = (slope of money each hour) + 10 you paid 3.75 for each hour (or h) you spent on the boat
ccswims
  • ccswims
so 3.75 is your slope 21.25 = 3.75h + 10 is your equation

Kk I got it thanks :) @ccswims but now I have to solve the equation
ccswims
  • ccswims
ok, subtract 10 to both sided
ccswims
  • ccswims
sides*

Kk I did that
ccswims
  • ccswims
ok, now what do you have?
anonymous

11.25
ccswims
  • ccswims
ok, so it should look like this 11.25 = 3.75h our objective is to get h by itself, so divide 3.75 to both sides
ccswims
  • ccswims
what do you get?

I solved it and I got 3
