# 12. The number of revolutions made by a tire traveling over a fixed distance varies inversely to the radius of the tire. A 12-inch radius tire makes 100 revolutions to travel a certain distance. How many revolutions would a 16-inch radius tire require to travel the same distance?

Most people when asked, “What is the equation of a line?”, will answer, “y = mx + b”. This is the

equation of a line in what is called slope-intercept form where “m” is the slope and “b” is the yintercept. So, how do you find the equation of a line? There are several different ways that you can find

the equation of a line. I find the equation of a line everytime by following the same three steps:

Step 1: Find the slope of the line.

Step 2: Use the slope to find the y-intercept.

Step 3: Use steps 1 and 2 to write the answer.
