2. Bob owns a watch repair shop. He has found that the cost of operating his shop is given by C(x) = 4x2-296x+85 , where c is cost and x is the number of watches repaired. How many watches must he repair to have the lowest cost?

3. Find the slope of the line through the points ( 5, -5) and ( 6, -1)

4. Kafka Inc. imports hard drives and sells them on the internet. The profit is given by the equation P = 140n - 8500, where n is the number of hard drives sold. Graph P = 140n - 8500 for n < 1000. Estimate the profit, to the nearest ten dollars, corresponding to the sale of 875 hard drives.

5. When $ 8500 is invested in a savings account paying simple interest for the year, the interest, i in dollars, can be obtained from the equation i = 8500r , where r is the rate of interest in decimal form. Graph i = 8500r , for r up to and including a rate of 16%. If the rate is 12%, how much interest is earned?

Expectations:
Differentiate between a function and a linear function.
Describe the mathematical equation of a standard linear function.
Describe how to compute the slope of a line.
