Jason is a trainer for the Mamaroneck Jets football team. He keeps track of the amount of water that the players consume throughout practice. Jason observes that the amount of water consumed is linear to the temperature on each given day. Jason finds that when it is 90°F the players consume 220 gallons of water and when it is 76°F the players consume 178 gallons of water.
Write a linear equation to model the relationship between gallons of water consumed and the temperature.

  1. You have two points: (90,220) and (76,178)
    The slope is (220-178)/(90-76) = 3
    So the point-slope equation is
    y-178 = 3(x-76)
