1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 5.The small town of Pi-ville wants to construct a road that connects to the Linear Super Highway. The road must provide a route that covers the shortest distance possible from the town to the highway. Write an equation that models the best route for the road. 2. Relevant equations y=mx+b 3. The attempt at a solution ok so im guessing that i have to draw a line from Pi-ville to the linear super highway. Then determine the slope and y-intercept of that line to develop an equation that represent the best route for the road. i chose to draw a line from pi-ville to the point (0,4) on the linear highway. then i calculated the slope of the line and determined the y-intercept (-4, 0) (0, 4) slope = (y2-y1) /(x2-x1) slope = (4-0) / 0-(-4) slope = 4/4 = 1 y-intercept: +4 (since the line crosses the vertical axis at point 4) an equation to represent the best route for the road is: y=mx + b y = 4/4x + 4 is this right?
