Lesson 29 Straight line graphs
A president wants to develop a missile system that will shoot down any rocket that is fired at his country. A rocket follows a path described by the equation y = 0.5x + 1.
Two of the missiles are placed on the y-axis at y = 3 and y = 7.
They have to shoot the rocket after it passes the line x = 6 but before it passes the line x = 8.
