 Question 204191: Suppose that a household's monthly water bill (in dollars) is a linear function of the amount of water the household uses (in hundreds of cubic feet, HCF). When graphed, the function gives a line with a slope of 1.35. If the monthly bill fro 16 HCF is \$24.35, what is the monthly bill for 20 HCF? I know that linear functions are x+y=z, I need help setting up the problem. Could you please help me!!!???!!! z(monthly cost)= x(HCF)+ y or monthly bill=1.35x + 20 or 20=1.35x + y PLEASE HELP!!

 Question 204869: Developing a deep understanding of linear relationships is an important part of the algebra curriculum. One way to analyze these relationships is to examine the way linear equations are represented symbolically, before they are graphed. Review the Semantic Feature Analysis activity, and then think about the following: Do the graphs of y = x and y = x + 2 intersect with each other? How could you answer this question without actually graphing each equation? How would you describe the relationship between the symbolic representation for these lines and their graphs?

 Question 205551: I'm having problems solving this problem as a system of equations. Please help. Thanks. The sales representatives informs you that there are two floor plans available. There are a total of 56 houses available. Plan A is x+y=56 and Plan B is x+3y=56. Use substitution to determine how many of each type of floor plan is available, and what are the intercepts of the equation from x+y=56 and from x+3y=56. where would the lines intercept? *this is so confusing to me, thanks.
