# A certain insect can beat its wings 170 times per second. Write an equation in slope-intercept form that shows the relationship between flying time in seconds and the number of times the insect beats its wings.

Question

Answer:

Answer:The equation is [tex]y=170x[/tex] Step-by-step explanation:Given : A certain insect can beat its wings 170 times per second.To find : Write an equation in slope-intercept form that shows the relationship between flying time in seconds and the number of times the insect beats its wings ?Solution : The general slope-intercept form is [tex]y = mx + b[/tex] where, m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.Let the amount of times the dragonfly has beat its wings be 'y'Let the time will be 'x'.A certain insect can beat its wings 170 times per second.i.e. the slope is m=170 and y-intercept is b=0Substitute the value in the general form,[tex]y=(170)x+0[/tex] [tex]y=170x[/tex] Therefore, the required equation is [tex]y=170x[/tex]
