More than 250

## Modeling with Linear Functions

Find the area of a triangle bounded by the y axis, the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}f\left(x\right)=10-2x,$ and the line perpendicular to $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}f\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ that passes through the origin.

A town’s population increases at a constant rate. In 2010 the population was 55,000. By 2012 the population had increased to 76,000. If this trend continues, predict the population in 2016.

118,000

The number of people afflicted with the common cold in the winter months dropped steadily by 50 each year since 2004 until 2010. In 2004, 875 people were inflicted.

Find the linear function that models the number of people afflicted with the common cold C as a function of the year, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ When will no one be afflicted?

For the following exercises, use the graph in [link] showing the profit, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y,$ in thousands of dollars, of a company in a given year, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x,$ where $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ represents years since 1980.

Reciprocal is a pair of numbers that, when multiplied together, equal to 1. Example; the reciprocal of 3 is ⅓, because 3 multiplied by ⅓ is equal to 1
