The population of a town has grown by an average of 2,000 people per year over the last 10 years. Which equation could represent an appropriate linear model
of the population? A.) y = 25,000x + 2,000 B.) y = 2,000x + 25,000 C.) y = 25,000x + 2,000 D.) y = 2,000x + 25,000
In slopeintercept form, y = mx + b:
m is the slope or rate of change b is the yintercept or, in this case, the starting amount If the town is growing by an average of 2,000 people per year, then 2,000 is the rate of change. x is the number of years Based on the answer choices, it appears the starting amount is 25,000 B.) 2,000x + 25,000 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
