in 2000 a camp had 450 campers. 5 translated it has 750 . Write a linear equation that represents number of campers that attend camp. I am so lost. Help
Not sure about the question. Do you mean 5 years later the camp has 750 campers? If so, then to find the slope you take the difference of the number of campers divided by the number of years:
(750-450)/5 = 300/5 = 60
The year 2000 is year 0, so the y-intercept is 450
The equation of a line in slope-intercept form is y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept
So the equation in this case is y = 60x + 450
