1. Desiree deposits 1000 in her savings account.
The account pays simple interest at a rate of
5 per year. How much will be in her account
after three years? (Assume that she does not
deposit or withdraw any other amounts during
this time.)
• Make a table to follow the account.
• year in account
• 0 1000
• 1 (5 of 1000) 1000 (50)
1000 1050
• 2 (5 of 1050) 1050 (52.50)
1050 1,102.50
• 3 (5 of 1,102.50) 1,102.50
(55.13) 1,102.50 1,157.63

2. A grocery store receives a shipment of 50
gallons of milk. It has 46 gallons left after
2 hours, 22 gallons left after14 hours, and 8
gallons left after 21 hours. Draw a graph of
the quantity of milk left as a function of time
and find the slope of the graph.
• First graph the data.

Find the slope by choosing two points on the
graph. Remember, slope is rise / run or the
change in y / change in x.

3. a. Write an equation of the line with slope 4
and y-intercept 5.
• Since the slope intercept form of a line is
• y mx b
• where m is the slope and b is the
y-intercept, we can just plug in the given values.

b. Write an equation of the line with slope 5
that passes through the point (0,3).
• First fill in the equation with the values you
• y 5x b

You need to find the y-intercept or b. Do this
by plugging in the x and y values from the given
point. Then solve for b. 3 5(0) b 3

I can see the y-intercept is 5.
I need to calculate the slope. Rise / Run or
change in y / change in x. Slope - 2
