# Changing a Y-Intercept in a Equation

A jetski rental company charges a \$50 deposit, plus \$25 per hour to rent a jetski. This can be represented by the formula T=25h+50, where T is the total cost, and h is the number of hours rented. What would change the y-intercept of the equation?

The y intercept represents the deposit charge of \$50.....it's known as the "fixed cost"......charging either more (or less) for the deposit will change the y intercept
