Known: total cost (y) is $21

each game (x) is $4

the played 4 games (m)

need to find: cost for shoes (b)

Equation: y = mx+b

21 = 4(4)+b

21-16 = b

b= 5

**The cost for shoes (b) is $5**

Known: The closest intersection visible is when Mo earns $5 for selling 2 boxes.

Divide both numbers by 2 to find how much Mo earns for selling 1 box.

**Mo earns $2.50 for each box of cookies he sells.**

Known: January profit is $8500 ; June profit is $19500

Infer: Number of months from January to June is 5

Divide the difference in profit by the difference in months to find the rate of change.

19500-8500 = 1100

1100/5 =220

**The rate of change of profit for this time period is $220 per month**
