**Reiny**, Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 10:57amLook at it as if you are given two ordered pairs

(3,250) and (4,120) of the form (P,B)

slope = (120-25)/(4-3) = -130/1 = -130

then just like in y = mx + b

B = -130P + b

sub in (4,120)

120 = -130(4) + b

b = 640

**B = -130P + 640**

check:

if P= 3 , B = -130(3) + 640 = 250

if P = 4 , B = -130(4) + 640 = 120

All is good.
