Give the coordinates of the points graphed below.

4.

23. Plot points with coordinates (2, 3), (3, 4), and (4, 5) on the given graph. What do you observe? Can you give the coordinates of another point with the same property?

Graph each of the following equations. (Please see the attached word document sheet it already has a template for a graph you can then copy and paste)
33 . 2x + 3y = 6

34. 2x - 3y = 12

50. Business and finance. The cost of producing a number of items x is given by C = mx + b, in which b is the fixed cost and m is the variable cost (the cost of producing one more item).
(a) If the fixed cost is \$40 and the variable cost is \$10, write the cost equation.
(b) Graph the cost equation.
(c) The revenue generated from the sale of x items is given by R = 50x. Graph the revenue equation on the same set of axes as the cost equation.
(d) How many items must be produced for the revenue to equal the cost (the break-even point)?

In exercise 52, find the constant of variation k.
52. m varies directly with n; m = 144 when n =8.

64. Business and finance. The revenue for a sandwich shop is directly proportional to its advertising budget. When the owner spent \$2000 a month on advertising, the revenue was \$120,000. If the revenue is now \$180,000, how much is the owner spending on advertising?

Graphing, Trends and Forecasting

5.
(a) Plot the data on U.S. general aviation shipments. (b) Describe the pattern and discuss possible causes. (c) Would a fitted trend be helpful? Explain. (d) Make a similar graph for 1992-2003 only. Would a fitted trend be helpful in making a prediction for 2004? (e) Fit a trend model of your choice to the 1992-2003 data. (f) Make a forecast for 2004, using either the fitted trend model or a judgment forecast. Why is it best to ignore earlier years in this data set? Airplanes
