# Modeling Linear Growth

## Slide the LARGE slider slowly. Pay attention to the dynamics you see. You can move the other LARGE BLACK POINT and other two sliders that will soon appear.

Is it possible to tell the slope of the line from the story without graphing the line itself? Explain.

Suppose you start off with $40 and lose $5 every 8 hours. What would the slope of the line be (if you could graph it above)?
