I think there is still something missing because you have not told us how big the overlap is.
I think to get a number answer we would need that, or something that would allow us to find it..
I suppose I can assume there is a 1.5inch border around the circles which would mean that the circles are tight inside a rectangle 12 inches high and 17inches long
One known value is
y= 2.55 when x=100
I have told you that y= 0.016x + something
Sub in your known values of x and y to find out the value of b
(which is the y intercept or the cost of prinint irrespective of the number of pages.)
2.55 = 0.016*100 +b
Now you can solve this to get the missing b value.
It is the x that has changed. I mean x has been repleaced with 9.2x so it is a horizontal compression.
You even have a hint here. The word compression is used. Compressions imply smaller. Which imples a number between 0 and 1.
Anyway multiplying x by 9.2 compresses the graph by 1/9.2 = 5/46
5/46 is a approximately 0.11 I tell you this so you can understand the graph.
You can see that (1,0) has compressed to (0.11,0)
The costs (y) are going up by 0.80 andthe pages (x) is going up by 50
so the gradient is rise /run = change in y/change in x = 0.8/50 = 0.016
y= 0.016x + something
Substitute any of the known values into the equation to find what that something (b) (yintercept) is.
Check by subing in a different pair and checking that it works.
You can post your working if you are not sure that your understand.
No one has answered any of my questions from the past week... Did I do something wrong?
What ARE you talking about.. They have ALL been answered.
Here is the last question that you posted:
It has two good answers, one from CPhill and one from Hectictar.
What I do notice is that you did not thank either of them or give either answerer any points or recognition even though the answers have been sitting there for some time!
So yes, I guess you have done something wrong.
