asked by Jack
  1. -1lb/6wk = -1/6 lb/wk

    that is the slope

    y = 148 - x/6

    why are you repeating it ??

    btw, it said he loses one pound per week for 6 weeks
    so the equation could be written
    y = -x + 148 , x ≤ 6

    "the for 6 weeks" simply limits the domain of the function so the results stay within logical limitations.
