Step 1

The total chapter 12 bankruptcy filings between 1996 and 2000 is modeled as B(t) = -83.9t + 1063, where t is the number of years since 1996. So, the values of t are 0 for 1996, 1 for 1997, 2 for 1998, 3 for 1999 and 4 for 2000.

Step 2

Here, help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseВ (1)-в (0) (a) The rate of change of B(t) 1-0 979.1-1063 1 1 -83.9 So, the rate of change is negative. Since the rate of change is negative the function is decreasing (b) The rate of change of the total chapter 12 is -83.9 filling per year (The calculation can be seen in the part (a)) fullscreen
Step 3

(c)  Now, we need to draw the... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1200 1063 979.1 1000 895.2 811.3 727.4 800 600 400 200 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3.5 4.5 t So, the first option is correct B(1)-B (0) The slope of the graph is 1-0 979.1-1063 -83.9 fullscreen
