 Question 447691: I have the following points (25, 16) and (40,26) and thanks to the very generous help of scott8148 I was able to figure out the first two part of this problem. I figured out the slope as m=2/3, and with that I figured out the y-intercept as - 2/3. Using this equation that he graciously provided. This points represented the height a ball was dropped from as the x-axis and the bounce heights as the y axis. So given the information above how would I set up an equation to determine the value of x if y=100. I also know that on this same graph is the point (50,33) So would I be correct in assuming then that by increasing the the value of x to something like 151 I would thus attain a y value of approximately 100?
