Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The intercept, aka , aka the value of the function at zero, is the water level when the dam was first built, i.e. in year 0. The slope is the average increase in level per year. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
