1. Which of the following situations could be represented by the equation y = -2x + 88?

a. The temperature in Williamsburg is 88 Degrees and increases about 2 degrees every hour.

b. Trey has traveled 2 miles and continues to travel at a speed of 88 miles per hour.

c. Priscilla is grading her homework and has an 88 so far. she will lose 2 points for each additional question she misses.

d. Greg has $88 in a short-term savings account, and he deposits $2 each day.


  1. The answer is C because 88 is the amount you cannot change and the slope is negative, therefore it makes the most sense for it to be connected with the questions that Priscilla misses.
