@ccswims can u help me ?

- Vocaloid

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

- ccswims

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

slope being the amount of money by each hour

- anonymous

I'm still confused ðŸ˜ž

- ccswims

ok,
21.25 = (slope) + your y intercept (the money you paid up front)

- ccswims

you paid $10 up front, right?

- anonymous

Yeah

- 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

so 3.75 is your slope
21.25 = 3.75h + 10 is your equation

- anonymous

Kk I got it thanks :) @ccswims but now I have to solve the equation

- ccswims

ok, subtract 10 to both sided

- ccswims

sides*

- anonymous

Kk I did that

- ccswims

ok, now what do you have?

- anonymous

11.25

- 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

what do you get?

- anonymous

I solved it and I got 3

- anonymous

So she rented the kayak for 3 hours

- ccswims

yes, you are right

- anonymous

Thank you so much @ccswims
