A manufacturing company finds that they can sell 300 items at \$3.50 per item and 500 items at \$1.50 per item . If the relationship between the number of items sold x and the price per item p is a linear one :
Find a formula that gives x in terms of p(x)-100+b I need help find out the b in slope intercept form.
Now use the formula to find the number of items they will if the price per item is \$2.50.
(300,3.5) (500,1.5)
P=mx+b
m=y_2-y_1/x_2-x_1=300-500/3.5-1.5=200/-2 -100
P=-100x+b
