8) The amount of pollution varies directly with the population of a city. City A has a population of 500,000 people and produces 150,000 tons of pollution. How much pollution should we expect City B to produce if its population is 350,000 people? Round your answer to the nearest whole ton.

9) Jeff wins $800,000 (after taxes) in the lottery and decides to invest half of it in a 10-year CD that pays 6.25% interest compounded monthly. He invests the other half in a money market fund that unfortunately turns out to average only 3.5% interest compounded annually over the 10-year period. How much money will he have altogether in the two accounts at the end of the 10-year period?

10) The average annual tuition and fees at all 4-year institutions in the US in 1982 was $15,400 and in 2012 was $ 27,850. Let y be the average tuition and fees in the year x, where x = 0 represents the year 1982.

a) Write a linear equation, in slope-intercept form, that models the growth in average tuition and fees at all 4-year institutions in the US in terms of the year x.

b) Use this equation to predict the average tuition and fees at 4-year institutions in the US in the year 2030.

c) Explain what the slope of this line means in the context of the problem.

11) Given the linear equation 10x - 5y = 15 :

a) Convert the equation to slope-intercept form. State the slope of the line and the y-intercept as an ordered pair.

b) Use the slope and the y-intercept to graph the line represented by the equation. You may use the axes provided, or create your own graph.

12) Given the following two linear equations, determine whether the lines are parallel, perpendicular, or neither. Show all work and explain your conclusion clearly.

3 x + 4 y = 12

4x = 15 + 3y

13) Write an equation of a line through the point (-2, -5) that is perpendicular to the x-axis. Graph the line on the grid below or create your own graph. State the slope of the line.

14) Find an equation of the line through (-2, -5), parallel to the line with equation 2x – y = 4. Write the new equation in point-slope form.

15) Convert the equation of the new line found in problem #14 to standard form, Ax + By = C, where A, B, and C are integers.
