 Question 520446: Assume that the number of defective basketballs produced is related by a linear equation to the total number produced. Suppose that 10 defective balls are produced in a lot of 325, and 17 defective balls are produced in a lot of 450. Find the number of defective balls produced in a lot of 550 balls.Answer by josmiceli(9817)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Plot number of defective balls, , on the vertical axis Plot the lot size, , on the horizontal given: 2 points on the straight line ( 325,10 ) ( 450,17 ) Use the point-slope formula check: ( 450,17 ) OK When , Rounding off, there are 23 defective balls
