State the domain and range
of the relation shown in the
graph. Is the relation a
function?
The relation is {(1, 2), (3, 3),
(0, –2), (–4, 0), (–3, 1)}.
{–4, –3, 0, 1, 3}. The range
is {–2, 0, 1, 2, 3}. Each member
of the domain is paired with exactly one member of the
range, so this relation is a function.
State the domain and range
of the relation shown in the
graph. Is the relation a
function?
{–3, 0, 2, 3}. The range
is {–2, –1, 0, 1}. Yes, the
relation is a function.

Sales As a part-time salesperson, Jean Stock is paid
a daily salary plus commission. When her sales are
\$100, she makes \$58. When her sales are \$300, she
makes \$78.
Write a linear equation to
model this situation.
Let x be her sales and let y be
the amount of money she makes.
Use the points (100, 58) and
(300, 78) to make a graph to
represent the situation.
Slope formula
Simplify.
Now use the slope and either of the given points with the
point-slope form to write the equation.

Distributive Property
Answer: The slope-intercept form of the equation
is
What are Ms. Stock’s daily
salary and commission rate?
The y-intercept of the line is 48.
The y-intercept represents the
money Jean would make if she
had no sales. Thus, \$48 is her
daily salary.
The slope of the line is 0.1. Since
the slope is the coefficient of x,
which is her sales, she makes
10% commission.
Answer: Ms. Stock’s daily salary is \$48, and she makes
a 10% commission.
How much would Jean make in a day if her sales
were \$500?
Find the value of y when
Use the equation you found
in Example 3a.
