## How many months will it take for my family to reach 10m3?

To nd out the amount of months it would take I would need to nd the equation of the tted line in my graph. My rst step was to nd the slope of the tted line. I can already tell that my slope is going to be negative as the data in the graph slowly get smaller over time. From there I have to take two points that intercept my tted line which are (3,36) and (9,30). (36-30/3-9), which equals 6,-6 and then you divide them by each other. The result of the problem is the slope of the line which is -1 and the y intercept is where the tted line crosses the y intercept at 39. The equation of the tted line is y=-1x+39. One problem they had-set out was to work out how long it would take for my family to reach the small number 10 m3. Firstly, I took the slope of the line and substituted the y in the equation for 10, so it would look like this 10=-1x+39. Then I simplied the equation in this process. 10 = -1x+39 -39 -39 I subtracted 39 form both sides of the equation then, -29 = -1x -1 -1 I divided -1 by both sides of the equation. 29=x It will take 29 months for my family to reach a 10m3, which is two years and ve months.
