The graph shows the relationship between the number of gallons of fuel remaining in the tank of a semitruck and the number of miles traveled by the semitruck.
Which function can be used to find y, the number of gallons of fuel remaining in the tank of the semitruck after it traveled x miles?

A. y = 240x - 30
B. y = -1/6x + 240
C. y = 240x + 10
D. y = -1/10x + 240

I can't post the graph, but the answer is 1 gallon of fuel per 10 miles if that helps.
