I want to start a lemonade stand and determine how much lemonade I need to sell to break even each day. If I know I spend $5 on supplies and sell the lemonade at $.50 per glass determine the number of glasses I must sell to break even. After you find the number of glasses tell me what the x-intercept,y-intercept and slope represent in the function you determined.
