    Answer:

    y=740x-400

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The story tells us that Boa drove from the Dead Sea up to Jerusalem. With the data provided, we can assume a linear relationship between altitude and the number of hours. We are given two key data: one point and the rate of change (or slope).

    We can easily find the equation of a line with slope m passing through a point (a,b) by using the formula

    y-b=m(x-a)

    In this case, y is the altitude above sea level, and x is the number of hours of driving

    The value of m is 740 meters/hour and the known point is x=1.5 hours, y=710 meters. Using these values

    y-710=740(x-1.5)

    y-710=740x-1110

    y=740x-400
