Find the slpoe and p- intercept for the line P = -3000n+ 17,000. c.) Interpret the slope and P -intercept 0 solutionsAnswer by Mathtut(3670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a)just plug in 1,2 and 3 for n : I will do the 2nd one(2years old) : P=-3000(2)+17000=\$11000 wholesale price after 2 years : b)remember this is written in slope intercept form y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y or in ur case the p intercept : so slope is -3000 and the p intercept is 17000 : c)the p intecept represents the beginning value of the Focus at year 0 the slope represents the change in value each year. In other words each year the Focus loses \$3000 worth of wholesale value.
