Another Example Y = GPA X = # hours spent watching TV per week As X , Y
Graphing - Setup Let Y = Web Site Revenue Let X = # of web site hits \$100 start up bonus to advertise 10 cents per "hit" Then the function relating Y and X is: Y = f(X) = 100 + .1X

Charting the Function Y = f(X) = 100 + .1X Points that satisfy this function: X Y 0 100 10 101 20 102 30 103 40 104 100 110
Given this, the graph looks like: Y=100+.1X Y 100 X __________ relationship

Unformatted text preview: ∆ Y/ ∆ X = (Y 2 – Y 1 )/(X 2 – X 1 ) (X 2 ,Y 2 ) and (X 1 ,Y 1 ): two points on line i.e. (X 2 ,Y 2 ) = (20,102) and (X 1 ,Y 1 ) = (10,101) ∆ Y/ ∆ X = (102-101)/(20-10) = 1/10 = .1 Interpretation: As the number of web site hits ___________ by 1, revenue __________ by .1 or ten cents. What about an Inverse Relationship? Y X Changing the Y-intercept Y X a < 0 a = 0 a > 0 Example (Course Packet) Fred is going shopping and has \$10 to spend. He plans to buy doritos (\$2/bag) and/or pepsi (\$1/bottle). He wants to spend his entire \$10. Fred’s Trip to Kroger: a) Possible Combinations Bags of Doritos (X) Bottles of Pepsi Y b) What is the opportunity cost of one bag of doritos? c) What is the opportunity cost of 1 bottle of Pepsi? d) Let X be # of bags of doritos and Y be # of bottles of pepsi. Find the Y-intercept. e) Find the slope of the line. f) Write the full linear equation. g) Graph the function....
