What was the original amount emery borrowed?B.how much does she pay each week?C. How useful are equations in point slope and slope intercept forms for answering each question?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: A. The original price was $608. B. $76 each week C. Quite useful, as it keeps track of the amount of money she still needs to owe each week. Step-by-step explanation: For part A, 5 week subtracted by 2 weeks is 3 weeks. 456-228 is 228. Then divide 228 by 3 and you get $76. Then do 2x76 to get 152 and add it to 456, and you get 608.
