The function C(g) represents the cost C of filling up | |0 |0 | | |the gas tank with g gallons. Given the equation: [pic] | | | | |A |What does the number 3. 3 represent? Relate this |3.

03 represents price per gallon that you are paying for at the pumps. | |. 5 | | |situation to real life. When you go to a gas | | | | | |station to fill your tank with gas, what are the 3| | | | | |key elements? | | | | |B |Find C(2) Restate the function, substitute the |C(2)=3. 3(2) c(2)=6.

06 | |. 5 | | |given input value, simplify the expression, then | | | | | |state the output value. | | | | | |Remember the units.

| | | | |C |Find C(9) Restate the function, substitute the |C(9)=3. 03(9) c(9)=27. 7 | |.

5 | | |given input value, simplify the expression, then | | | | | |state the output value. | | | | | |Remember the units. | | | | |D |For the average motorist, name one value for g |C(15)=3. 03(15) c(15)=45. 5 | |. 5 | | |that would be inappropriate for this function’s | | | | | |purpose. Think about what g represents, then what | | | | | |number would be impossible or improbable to | | | | | |represent this element.

| | | |E |If you were to graph C(g), what would be an |? | |1 | | |appropriate domain? Range? State two intervals | | | | | |describing the minimum and maximum values for both| | | | | |the domain and the range.What element does the | | | | | |domain represent, what does the range represent? | | | | |2 |Examine the rise in gasoline prices from 1997 to |Y2-y1/x2-x1 | |1 | | |2006. The price of regular unleaded gasoline in |2. 31-1. 6/2006-1997 | | | | |January 1997 was $1. 26 and in January 2006 the |1. 05/9 | | | | |price of regular unleaded gasoline was $2. 31 |The slope is .

12 | | | | |(Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2006). Use the | | | | | |coordinates (1997, 1. 6) and (2006, 2. 31) to find | | | | | |the slope (or rate of change) between the two | | | | | |points. Describe how you arrived at your answer – | | | | | |Show your steps. | | | | | |State the Slope Formula.

Note that it uses the | | | | | |coordinates of two points of the functions. These| | | | | |points can be found in this given information. | | | | |3 |The linear equation [pic] represents an estimate of the average cost of gas for year x starting in 1997.The year 1997| |0 |0 | | |would be represented by x = 1, for example, as it is the first year in the study. Similarly, 2005 would be year 9, or x| | | | | |= 9. | | | | |A |What year would be represented by x = 4? Be |1997+4=2001 | |.

Be careful|2018-1997=21 | |. 5 | | |here – use an example and think about what x=0 | | | | | |represents. | | | | |C |What is the slope (or rate of change) of this |. 5 is the slope | |. 5 | | |equation? Restate the equation. What form is this| | | | | |equation in and what do the constants represent? | | | | |D |What is the y-intercept? Restate the equation. |.

79 would be the y-intercept | |. 5 | | |What form is this equation in and what do the | | | | | |constants represent? | | | |E |What does the y-intercept represent specific to |The y represents the price the gas goes up. | |.

5 | | |this situation? | | | | | |The y-intercept is where the line crosses the y | | | | | |axis. What is the x coordinate of this point? | | | | |What does this point mean in this situation? | | | | |F |Assuming this growth trend continues, what will |. 15(21)+. 79 | |1 | | |the price of gasoline be in the year 2018? Restate|3. 15+. 79= | | | | |the function/equation that represents the price of|3. 4 | | | | |gas by year. Substitute the appropriate input | | | | | |value, show steps in solving for y.

Remember | | | | | |units. | | | | |4 |The line [pic]represents an estimate of the average cost of gasoline for each year. |0 |0 | | |The line [pic] estimates the price of gasoline in January of each year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2006). | | | | |A |Do you expect the lines to be intersecting, |intersecting | |. 5 | | |parallel, or perpendicular? How can you tell by | | | | | |looking at the equations whether the lines would | | | | | |intersect or not? | | | |B |Use the equations of the lines to determine if |? | |1 | | |they are parallel. What did you find? What do you| | | | | |know about parallel lines? What is given in the | | | | | |equations of two lines that you can compare? | | | | |Clearly identify this element and state your | | | | | |conclusion.
