Ivan is putting money into a checking account. Let y represent the total amount of money in the account (in dollars). Let x represent the number of weeks Ivan has been adding money. Suppose that x and y are related by the equation y=550+40x. What is the change per week in the amount of money in the bank? What was the starting amount of money in the account?

  2. Note that a change can be an increase or a decrease. For an increase, use positive number. For decrease use, negative number.

  3. Since you indicate that Ivan is only "adding money," the change will only be positive.

  5. First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

    T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9
