Multiple Choice
Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.
 

 1. 

Kristi rides her bike to school and has an odometer that measures the distance traveled. She subtracts this distance from the distance to the school and records the distance that remains between her and the school. Find the intercepts. What do the intercepts represent?

Time traveled (min)
Distance remaining (ft)
0
5,000
2
3,750
4
2,500
6
1,250
8

a.
x-intercept = 8; y-intercept = 5000
The x-intercept represents the time traveled when Kristi arrived at school. The y-intercept represents the distance remaining when Kristi began her bike ride.
b.
x-intercept = 5000; y-intercept = 8
The x-intercept represents the time traveled when Kristi began her bike ride. The y-intercept represents the distance remaining when Kristi arrived at school.
c.
x-intercept = 5000; y-intercept = 8
The x-intercept represents the distance remaining when Kristi began her bike ride. The y-intercept represents the time traveled when Kristi arrived at school.
d.
x-intercept = 8; y-intercept = 5000
The x-intercept represents the time traveled when Kristi began her bike ride. The y-intercept represents the distance remaining when Kristi arrived at school.
