# The manager of a weekend flea market knows from past experience that if he charges x dollars for a rental space at the market, then the number y of spaces he can rent is given by the equation y = 200 − 4 x .(a) Sketch a graph of this linear function. (Remember that the rental charge per space and the number of spaces rented can't be negative quantities.)(b) What do the slope, the y-intercept, and the x-intercept of the graph represent?

(a)

To determine

To sketch: The graph of the linear function y=2004x .

Explanation

Let x-axis be represented the rental charge in dollars and the y-axis be represented the number of spaces rented.

Given that the linear function of number of spaces is y=2004x .

Here, the slope of the linear equation is −4 and the y-intercept is 200

(b)

To determine

To explain: The meaning of the slope, y-intercept and the x-intercept of the graph obtained in part (a).
