The slope represents the monthly flat rate, so the company charges a flat rate of $30 per month. 13c. y 2 y 1 5 m ( x 2 x 1 ) y 2 40 5 30( x 2 0) y 2 40 5 30 x y 5 30 x 1 40 13d. The new monthly rate will be $25 per month, so the equation will be y 5 25 x 1 40. The graph will have a less steep slope. 14a. Using the Triangle Proportionality Theorem, if a line is parallel to one side of a triangle and intersects the other two sides in two distinct points, then it separates these sides into segments of proportional length, so } A A E C } 5 } A A D B } . Since the corresponding sides are proportional and the included angle, / A ,is the same, by SAS
