its replacement cost
the value of time lost due to traffic congestion
operation and maintenance costs

2. Refer to the following graph

a. What is the value of the vertical intercept?
b. What is the value of the horizontal intercept?
c. What is the slope of the line?

3.  Refer to the following graph

a. What is the vertical intercept?
b. What is the horizontal intercept?
c. What is the slope of the line?

4. Refer to the following graph

a. What is being measured on the horizontal axis?
b. What is being measured on the vertical axis?
c. The line is  concave convex.
d. For what quantity does revenue reach its maximum?

5. The following pairs of numbers all lie along the same line in the X-Y plane.
6.  X Y 10 15 20 45

From the numbers find
the slope of the line:
the intercept of the line:

7. What is the slope of the line given by P=100+3Q?

8. Does the line P=50-6Q slope
Up and to the right
Down and to the right
9.
10. The relationship is P = 30 - 5Q.  Solve the equation for Q in terms of P.  Write your answer below:
 Left hand side variable New intercept New slope Right hand side variable = +

9. Two equations describe the relationship between P and Q.  They are

P = 30 - 5 Q   and    P = 4 + 5 Q .

Solve the pair of equations for P and Q.

P =    Q =
