There are two parents that are ready to adopt a child. But they both want the same child named Rocky. Rocky was a talented boy which attracted the parents. It time for the Rocky to decide and the child is looking for a family that has a better earning rate. Parent A earns \$200.00 as a flat fee and \$20.00 per hour. Parent B earns \$250.00 as a flat fee and \$15.00 per hour. Which parent should he live with?

## Equation

E=Earning H=Hours E=y H=x

Parent A Blue =y=20x+200

Parent B Red =y=15x+250

## POI( Point of intersection)

(10,400)

Parent A: E=20(10)+200 Parent B: E=15(10)+250

E=\$400.00 E=\$400.00

Parent A: E=20(10)+200 Parent B: E=15(10)+250

E=\$400.00 E=\$400.00

## Explanation

The intersection shows the point where they intersect and where parent a earnings beat parent b. Which proves Parent a earning rates are better. So Rocky will use this data to pick which parent has the better earning rate.

## Statement

Rocky should pick parent A because its rate of earning is more than Parent B.
