The cost, y, of renting a canoe can be shown by y+12x + 30 where x is the time in hours. Identify the y intercept as an ordered pair and explain what it means in terms of the problem.

  • math -

    You must have meant:

    y = 12x+30

    the y - intercept is (0,30)

    it means that there is a basic cost of $30 to rent the canoe.
    So as soon as you tied your canoe to the top of your car, it would have cost you $30.
