Given the equation 2x + 10y = 10, answer the following questions:

If x decreases by 2 units, what is the corresponding change in y?

? units

• math -

Write in y = mx+b form.

10y = -2x + 10

y = -1/5 (x) + 1

If x = 5, y = 0
If x = 3, y = -3/5 + 1 or 2/5

If x decreases by 2, then y decreases by 2/5 of a unit.
