Question

pointers and 11 foul shots (1 point each) and the rest of their
points came from two point baskets.
Determine the equation, slope and y-intercept for a function
that outputs the total points the Dragons scored (p) based on
Slope:
Y-Intercept:
Equation (in slope-intercept form):

1. Slope: 2
Y-Intercept: 47
Equation (in slope-intercept form): p = 2b + 47.
Step-by-step explanation:
To determine the equation, slope, and y-intercept for a function that outputs the total points the Dragons scored based on the number of 2-point baskets made, you will need to use the information given about the number of 3-pointers, foul shots, and 2-point baskets made.
First, let’s define p as the total number of points the Dragons scored and b as the number of 2-point baskets made.
We know that the Dragons scored a total of 12 three-pointers * 3 points per 3-pointer + 11 foul shots * 1 point per foul shot = 47 points from 3-pointers and foul shots.
Therefore, the total number of points the Dragons scored can be expressed as:
p = 47 points + 2 points per 2-point basket * b 2-point baskets
This equation is in slope-intercept form, with the slope being 2 points per 2-point basket and the y-intercept being 39 points.
The equation in slope-intercept form is:
p = 2b + 47
Therefore, the slope of the function is 2, the y-intercept is 39, and the equation is p = 2b + 47.
