Part A)

Lin has a summer reading assignment. After reading the first 30 pages of the book, she plans to read 40 pages each day until she finishes. Lin makes the graph shown here to track how many total pages she'll read over the next few days.

After day 1, Lin reaches page 70, which matches the point (1,70) she made on her graph. After day 4, Lin reaches page 190, which does not match the point (4,160) she made on her graph. Lin is not sure what went wrong since she knows she followed her reading plan.

Sketch a line showing Lin's original plan on the axes.

Draw your line on paper, take a picture, and upload it using the image upload icon

If you do not have the ability to upload an image of your work, type "Line is on paper."

Jada's grandparents started a savings account for her in 2010. The table shows the amount in the account each year.

If this relationship is graphed with the year on the horizontal axis and the amount in dollars on the vertical axis, what is the vertical intercept? What does it mean in this context?
