Plot them, then derive the origin __________________ __________________ New laptop: 2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor :: nVidia GT150m :: 15.6" HD LCD :: 4gb RAM :: 320gb HDD New player: iPhone 4 32gb

Then you take. Y1=X1(m)+B Plug in the point they give you for line AD and find B, then you have your equation. __________________ “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - Dr. Suess

Once you have the slope of line B, you can write it's equation if you have 1 point that lays on that line (call it (a, b)). The equation of line B will be: y - b = (-1/C) * (x - a)

If the company is treating you poorly and you're not getting proper pay, I'd have done the same. Though I would have started interviewing for jobs before I quit . But if you're still living at home, there is no loss. then having a job is a bonus, not a requirement. __________________ RD-PC -//- i7 950 // Evga x58 SLI // 3x2 OCZ PC3-12800 // 2x Evga GTX470 // Corsair HX850 // SilverStone TJ07

Some aren't; some are. The majority of parents don't require their <18 year olds to pay rent. Some require money for utilities or ask you to do chores/tasks. __________________ RD-PC -//- i7 950 // Evga x58 SLI // 3x2 OCZ PC3-12800 // 2x Evga GTX470 // Corsair HX850 // SilverStone TJ07

I will support my kids if I ever have any as much as I can until they have a job that can support them... It's only fair IMO. __________________ “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - Dr. Suess

I've never received pocket money, i make my own way with the spare time i have and i love the respectful relationship i have with my parents, i'm never asking them for money and i help out a lot. I don't understand these kids you see who are so rude to their parents and they are still given pocket money, bought loads of stuff and never punished. Bit of an off topic rant there, i apologise I'm very easily distracted __________________ __________________ New laptop: 2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor :: nVidia GT150m :: 15.6" HD LCD :: 4gb RAM :: 320gb HDD New player: iPhone 4 32gb
