Q:
# A store rents DVDs for a base fee of $3.00 plus $0.50 for each day th customer has the DVD. This situation can be modeled by the linear equation y = 0.50x + 3.00. Which statement compares the graph of this model to that of the parent function y = x?A. The graph of y = 0.50x + 3.00 is steeper that the graph of the parent function and has a y-intercept above that of the parent function. B. The graph of y = 0.50x + 3.00 is less than the graph of the parent function and has a y-intercept below that of the parent function. C. The graph of y = 0.50x + 3.00 is steeper than the graph of the parent function and has a y-intercept below that of the parent function.D. The graph of y = 0.50x + 3.00 is less steep than the graph of the parent function and has a y-intercept below that of the parent function.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Β none of the aboveStep-by-step explanation:The slope of the equation in the model is 0.5, so is less steep than that of the parent function, which has a slope of 1.The y-intercept of the model equation is +3, so is above that of the parent function, which has a y-intercept of 0.None of the answer choices have this combination of wording. (Answer choices B and D appear to be the same.)___In the attached graph, the model is shown in blue; the parent function is shown in red.
