a. At the start, months = 0; employees = 2. In 6 months, months = 6; employees =14

(0,2)

(6,14)

b and c. 2 employees/month is the slope

This is how many employees the company would have to add per month to get 14 employees at the end of 6 months

E = 2 + r*m

where E is the number of empoyees, r is the rate per month at which employees are added, and m is the number of months.
