Juan wants to rent a house. He gathers data on many similar houses. The distance from the center of the city, x, and the monthly rent for each house, y, are shown in the scatter plot. Juan models the data with a linear equation.
Based on the scatter plot, what could the number 1275 represent in his equation? A.) The estimated rent for a house in the center of the city. B.) The estimated minimum rent for a house far from the center of the city. C.) The estimated change in rent for each additional mile from the center of the city. D.) The estimated change in distance from the center of the city for each dollar change in rent.
1275 is the yintercept, where x is 0
y represents amount of rent x represents distance from the center of the city The point (0,1275) would represent $1275 monthly rent for a house at the center of the city. Therefore, 1275 would represent A.) The estimated rent for a house in the center of the city. Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
