2 Using a Linear Model A spring has a length of 8 cm when a 20-g mass is hanging at the bottom end. Each additional gram stretches the spring another 0.15 cm. Write an equation for the length y of the spring as a function of the mass x of the attached weight. Step 1 Identify two points as (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). Adding another 20 g of mass at the end of the spring will give a total mass of 40 g and a length of 8  0.15(20)  11 cm. Use the points (x1, y1)  20, and (x2, y2)  40, to find the linear equation.

3 Determining Whether a Linear Model Is Reasonable An art expert guessed the selling prices of five paintings. Then, she checked the actual prices. The data points (guess, actual) show the results, where each number is in thousands of dollars. Graph the data points. Decide whether a linear model is reasonable. If so, draw a trend line and write its equation. {(12, 11), (7, 8.5), (10, 12), (5, 3.8), (9, 10)} Actual (thousands \$)

Quick Check. 1. Suppose a balloon begins descending at a rate of 20 ft/min from an elevation of 1350 ft. a. Write an equation to model the balloon’s elevation as a function of time. What is true about the slope of this line?

b. Graph the equation. Interpret the h-intercept.

3. Graph the data points. Decide whether a linear model is reasonable. If so, draw a trend line and write its equation. {(7.5, 19.75), (2, 9), (0, 6.5), (1.5, 3), (4, 1.5)}
