Question

Marc owns a landscaping business. For each lawn, he charges $75 plus $30 per hour of work. A linear equation that expresses the total amount of money Marc earns per lawn is y=75+30x. What are the independent and dependent variables? What is the y-intercept and the slope?

Select the correct answer below:

A. The independent variable (x) is the amount of time Marc works
a property. The dependent variable (y) is the amount, in dollars,
Marc earns for a lawn.

Marc charges a one-time fee of $75 (this is when x=0), so the
y-intercept is 75. Marc earns $30 for each hour he works, so the
slope is 30.

B. The independent variable (x) is the amount of time Marc works
a property. The dependent variable (y) is the amount, in dollars,
Marc earns for a lawn.

Marc charges a one-time fee of $30 (this is when x=0), so the
y-intercept is 30. Marc earns $75 for each hour he works, so the
slope is 75.

C. The independent variable (x) is the amount, in dollars, Marc
earns for a lawn. The dependent variable (y) is the amount of time
Marc works a property.

Marc charges a one-time fee of $30 (this is when x=0), so the
y-intercept is 30. Marc earns $75 for each hour he works, so the
slope is 75.

D.The independent variable (x) is the amount, in dollars, Marc
earns for a lawn. The dependent variable (y) is the amount of time
Marc works a property.

Marc charges a one-time fee of $75 (this is when x=0), so the
y-intercept is 75. Marc earns $30 for each hour he works, so the
slope is 30.

Answer #1

Simple linear regression

We know that for independent variable x and dependent variable y, the regression equation is given by y= a+bx where a is the y-intercept and b is the slope of the equation.

So here the independent variable (x) is the amount of time, in hours, Marc works for a property. The dependent variable (y) is the amount, in dollars, Marc earns for a lawn.

Marc charges a one-time fee of $75 (when x=0), so the y-intercept is 75. Marc earns $30 for each hour he works, so the slope is 30.

Thus A is the correct answer.

alice owns a snow shoveling business. for each
driveway, she charges $50 plus $70 per hour of work. a linear
equation that expresses the total amount of money Alice earns per
driveway y=70x + 50. what are the independent variables? what is
the y-intercerpt and the slope?

Kyle decides to buy some equipment for his lawn mowing business.
For this equipment, he must pay the following amounts:
a) Now $0 End of year 1: $10,000 End of Year 2: $8,500 End of
year 3: $9,700 If the appropriate discount rate is of 12 percent
p.a. compounding semi-annually, calculate the value of the

The table below gives the number of hours spent unsupervised
each day as well as the overall grade averages for seven randomly
selected middle school students. Using this data, consider the
equation of the regression line, yˆ=b0+b1x, for predicting the
overall grade average for a middle school student based on the
number of hours spent unsupervised each day. Keep in mind, the
correlation coefficient may or may not be statistically significant
for the data given. Remember, in practice, it would...

In this week's lesson, Week 2: Linear Equations, we
explored four different linear relationships with respect to slope:
positive, negative, zero, and
undefined slopes. As you create your own example, think of
the relationship between the independent variable (x) and dependent
variable (y). Here's another quick example to help you construct
your own linear scenario: Suppose you are painting a wall, and you
begin with 5 gallons in the can. Graphically, 5 gallons would be
our y-intercept for time at...
