Find the value of x when y is 9.
I will assume you want
(-2,2) , (x,9) , and (4,20) to lie on the same straight line?
method I : find the equation of the line using the two known points, then sub in y=9
Method II : just set up a ratio ...
(x+2)/(9-2) = (4+2)/(20-2)
(x+2)/7 = 1/3
3x + 6 = 7
x = 1/3
how do you graph the function for p(x)=2x^2=12,500 where x is the number of items sold x(underscore)>3
