The yearly production of a 6 foot orange tree is 40 pounds of oranges. A 16 foot tree produces 65 pounds.? Let H represent the height of an orange tree and p the number of pounds of oranges produced.

a). List the ordered pairs. (H.P) What is the ordered pair for the first tree? (6,40) What is the ordered pair for the second tree: (16,65)

B. Find the point-slope form of an equation of the line through the two ordered pairs. p - 40 = 5/2 (h-6)

C. Use the equation from part b)to predict the number of pounds of oranges produced by an 18 foot tree; a 20 foot tree.

What is the predicted production of an 18 foot tree?

What is the predicted production of an 20 foot tree?

D. Use the question from part b) to predict the height of a tree which produces 88 pounds of oranges. What is the predicted height (in feet) of a tree that produces 88 pounds of oranges?

a) The ordered pair for the xxxxx xxxx xx (Height1, Production1) xxxx is xxx 40).

b) The ordered xxxx for the xxxxx tree is (Height2, xxxxxxxxxxxx that is xxxx 65).

B) xxxxxxxxxxx form xx xx equation of the line through xxx xxx xxxxxxx xxxxx is xxxxxxxxxx with xxx xxxx of following xxxxxxxxx

xx xxxxx = (Production2 - Production1)/ xxxxxxxx xxx xxxxxxxx

Placing values xx xxx above equation

Slope x xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Slope = 25/10

xxxxx = xxx

xx (Production x xxxxxxxxxxxx = xxxxx xxxxxxx – xxxxxxxx xx

xx x P1) = Slope xx – H1)

xxxxxxx values in the above equation

xxxxxx = 5/2 (H – 6)

xx Replacing x in xxx xxxxx equation by

H x 18

xxxxxx x 5/2 (18 xxx 6)

(P-40) = xxx xxxx

P = 70 xxxxxx xx xxxxxxx

x x xx

(P-40) x xxx xxx – xx

xxxxxx x xxx xxxx

x = xx pounds of xxxxxxx

xx xxxxxx = xxx xx – 6)

xxxxxxxxx P xx the xxxxx xxxxxxxx by

P x 88

(88-40) x 5/2 (H xxx xx

48 x 5/2 (H – 6)

x = 25.2 feet xx the xxxxxx xx tree
