Hot dogs and Hamburgers:

1.)

The caterer for your class picnic charges $1 for each hotdog and $2 for each hamburger. You have $48 to spend. Write a model that shows the different numbers of hot dogs and hamburgers that you could purchase...

2.) Airplane landing: An Airplane's altitude is 100 feet as it is descending for a landing on a runway whose touchdown point is 5000 feet away. Let the x-axis represent the distance on the ground and the y-axis represent the airplane's altitude.

WHAT IS THE SLOPE OF THE AIRPLANE'S DESCENT????

3.) WRITE AN EQUATION of the line that follows the path of the airplane's descent.

since the plane descends 100 feet as it travels 5000 feet, clearly the slope is

-100/5000 = -0.02

so, since y=100 when x=0,

y = 100-0.02x

Note that when x=5000, y = 0, and we have touchdown.
