### Problem 2

The graph shows a linear relationship between $$x$$ and $$y$$.

$$x$$ represents the number of comic books Priya buys at the store, all at the same price, and $$y$$ represents the amount of money (in dollars) Priya has after buying the comic books.

1. Find and interpret the $$x$$- and $$y$$-intercepts of this line.

2. Find and interpret the slope of this line.

3. Find an equation for this line.
4. If Priya buys 3 comics, how much money will she have remaining?

### Problem 4

A container of fuel dispenses fuel at the rate of 5 gallons per second. If $$y$$ represents the amount of fuel remaining in the container, and $$x$$ represents the number of seconds that have passed since the fuel started dispensing, then $$x$$ and $$y$$ satisfy a linear relationship.

In the coordinate plane, will the slope of the line representing that relationship have a positive, negative, or zero slope? Explain how you know.
