### Chap 16 (Activity 1) What does the line say?

With reference to the graph above, give a scenario that could be represented by the graph above.
Remember to 'name' the horizontal and vertical axes so that you could describe the relationship clearly.
At the end of the description, make an attempt to write down the equation for the graph (with y being the vertical axis, x being the horizontal axis)

The relationship between the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) axes:

1. Every \$10 you will get 2 loaf of bread.

1. (x) Horizontal Axis: Amount of money in dollars (\$)
(y) Vertical Axis: N.o of loafs of bread

2. Provide a context (that is a brief 'story line') so that the reader is able to "see" how the amount of money is 'related' to the bread.

2. horizontal axis (x) = fishes
Vertical axis (y) = Eggs
for every 10 fishes , he gets 2 eggs

1. Provide a context (that is a brief 'story line') so that the reader is able to "see" how the fish is 'related' to the egg.

3. Every 10 cents equals to 2 sweets

(x) horizontal axis= amount of money
(y) vertical axis = number of sweets

1. Provide a context (that is a brief 'story line') so that the reader is able to "see" how the amount of money is 'related' to the sweets.
By the way, we cannot say "10 cents equals to 2 sweets" - the word "equal" is not appropriate here.

4. every 10 cents you will get 2 fishball

1. Define the Horizontal and Vertical axes in this context.

5. (x) Horizontal axis: Amount of money in 1000 dollars
(y) Vertical axis: Number of cars

For every ten \$1000, you get 2 cars

6. (x) Horizontal Axis: Time taken
(y) Vertical Axis: Distance travelled
Every 10 second, the car travels 2 meters.

7. Horizontal axis: Number of marks
Vertical axis: Number of questions answered correct
For every two questions answered correct, you get 10 marks

8. horizontal axis (x) = number of hits at target
Vertical axis (y) = number of points
for every 10 targets hit , he gets 2 points

9. Horizontal axis(x):time in seconds
Vertical axis(y):speed of a car in m/s
For every 10 seconds the car accelerates 2m/s
