and T is the number of work days he has

spent painting When H is ten what would the value

of TB Okay Well we'll get that It's five like

that's not too hard to figure out but what does

it mean What's the greater meaning in all of this

Drakes been working hard turning out freshly painted houses at

a constant rate We have been given an equation that

can be understood in terms of slope intercept form that

you know Y equals MX plus B thing Hopefully we're

drilling into you right now that this happens a lot

on the right you're given the slope intercept form and

you have to kind of back out what the equation

means in a Peruvian philosophical way In place of our

Y term we have h the number of houses he's

painted And in place of acts we have tea or

the number of work days he has spent painting When

H is ten we know he's painted ten houses where

we could then calculate for the T value should be

five But we don't need to know the exact number

of days here It's need to know what the answer

would represent philosophy of it The greater meaning which is

the number of work days it has taken him to

paint Those ten houses So that's it The answer is

C That's the number of work days Take straight to

paint ten houses I don't know how long it take 00:01:28.38 --> [endTime] you to a penthouse Never done it never will
