1.The function g(x) has a slope of −56. The value of g(x) is 5 when x is 6. Explain how the graph of g(x) can be used to find the x-intercept.(2 points)

Start at_____, and then go_____until the point________

select the three and move them to the correct slot

(12,0)

(0,10)

(up 5 units and to the right 6 units)

(6,5)

(down 5 units and to the right 6 units)

2.What is something to be careful of when examining the graph of a function that models a real-world scenario?

graphs with steep slopes since steep slopes are unrealistic

graphs with negative slopes since slopes can only be positive in the real world

graphs that intersect the positive y-axis and positive x-axis since it's never possible to interpret these points in the context of a real-world scenario

values of the graph that are not possible in the context of the real-world scenario

3.

Cody plays an online game that allows users to trade points earned from the game for pieces of gold that could be used as currency to trade among players. The function P(g)=−50g+14,590 represents the number of points, P, Cody has after purchasing g pieces of gold. What does the y-intercept of P(g) represent for this situation?(1 point)

Cody has 14,590 points before he purchases pieces of gold.

Each piece of gold costs 14,590 points.

Cody has 50 points before he purchases pieces of gold.

Each piece of gold costs 50 points.

• 1.The function g(x) has a slope of −5/6. The value of g(x) is 5 when x is 6.

Explain how the graph of g(x) can be used to find the x-intercept.(2 points)

Start at   (6, 5)   ,

and then go   down 5 units and to the right 6 units

until the point   (12, 0)

The x-intercept is where y = 0

so it's (12, 0)
