x y change in y/change in x which is slope -2 9 ****** -5 -1 4 ****** -5 0 -1 ****** -5 1 -6 ****** -5 2 -11 hmmm, constant slope = -5 y = -5 x + b 9 = -5 (-2) + b 9 = 10 + b b = -1 so y = -5 x -1 answer check at last point -11 = -5(2) -1 -11 = -10 - 1 yes, good

speed upstream = 8 - u speed downstream = 8 + u time upstream = 5/(8-u) time downstream =5/(8+u) so 5(8-u) + 5/(8+u) = (4/3) hr 5(8+u) + 5(8-u) = (4/3)(64-u^2) 15(8+u) + 15(8-u) = 256(64-u^2) etc, solve quadratic
