# Which scenario is most likely the one shown on the graph?-the total amount of money in the cash register, y, containing $50 in change and small bills and x $100 bills-the total number of puzzle pieces, y, in a brand new 50-piece puzzle, and x brand-new 100-piece puzzles-the total weight of the barbell, y, where the bar weighs 50 pounds and x 100-pound weights are added to it-the total number of calories, y, in a salad with vegetables containing 50 calories topped with x ounces of salad dressing at 100 calories per ounce

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer : DFrom the given graph,x represents the ounces of salad dressingy represents the total number of calories From the graph , y intercept is 50Now we find slope using any two points from the graphPick any two points(0.5,100) (1.5,200)[tex]slope = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} =\frac{200-100}{1.5-0.5} =100[/tex]slope = 100 that is 100 calories per ounce y intercept = 50 that means 50 calories toppedSo, answer is the total number of calories, y, in a salad with vegetables containing 50 calories topped with x ounces of salad dressing at 100 calories per ounce
