money The graph below shows the price of nut box

with dollars on the horizontal axis and nut bucks on

the vertical axis The wife The exchange rate is something

nut bucks per dollar Thanks Not f***ed for gone nut

bucks I get a dollar bill All right Well first

of all this nicky nut place seems like a total

scam to us Uh hard earned us dollars in exchange

for nut bucks Really Guess they're appropriately named on lee

and nut is going to buy any of these things

huh So we've got a graph of a line and

we're told that the for rosana ll access represents dollars

This thing So this is two dollars four dollars and

so on And nut bucks or shown by the vertical

axis Two bucks for bugs No And we need to

find the exchange rate Something tells us a phone call

To our local currency exchange gonna do the trick So

what were sneakily being asked to find here is the

slope of the line point People people exchange rate is

really referring to slopes and small slope is a rate

change And that key word her should tell us that

we need to create a fraction well with nut bucks

on top and dollars on the bottom But we know

how many nut bucks is her dollar got it That's

what we're gonna do All right well we can pick

a sample point Say this one it's easiest to go

with this one since it's exactly one dollar and we

won't need to simplify our fraction Though it one dollar

were at three nut box we put the free over

the one and looks like the exchange rate is three

nut bucks per dollar So yeah three is our answer

Yeah it definitely seems like a rip off but at

least you can get something for your nut box We're

still trying to figure out what to do with all

those british fifty pound notes that we've had sitting in 00:02:03.886 --> [endTime] our sock drawer since last spring
