    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A. The Initial value is the starting value of her business which can be considered $350 since that is what she made the first year. The Slope can be calculated by subtracting the end profit from the initial profit and then dividing by the result of subtracting the end year by the initial year like so…

    $350 initial value

    \frac{750 - 350}{2014 - 2010}  = \frac{400}{4}  = \frac{100}{1 year}  =  $100 a year increase

    B. The equation for this scenario would be  y = 100x + 350
