Answer:

y = 18 – 6x

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

Speed or rate = 6mph

y = distance away from home

x = hours biked

Initial distance from home = 18 miles

General form of Slope – intercept form of an equation :

y = mx + c

Where ;

m = gradient or slope = rate of change

c = intercept or initial value or amount, always constant

x = independent variable

y = dependent variable

Hence,

For the question above :

Distance away from home, depends on the number of hours biked

y = 18 – 6x
