Make a Prediction:

What is the value of the slope of the line?

Slope

Slope of A Line

Amount of Gas Used (gallons)

Distance Traveled (miles)

Attend to Meaning:

What does the slope represent in this case?

0.05 gallons per mile refers to the gas consumption efficiency of the particular vehicle

Slope of A Line

Amount of Gas Used (gallons)

Distance Traveled (miles)

Make a Prediction:

If we let the horizontal axis represents the amount of gas and the vertical axis represents the distance, what is the value of the slope of the new line?

Slope = ?

Slopeg-d = 0.05

Sloped-g = 20

One slope is the reciprocal of the other:

Amount of Gas Used (gallons)

Distance Traveled (miles)
