    Slope-intercept form:  y = mx + b

    (m is the slope, b is the y-intercept or the y value when x = 0 –> (0, y) or the point where the line crosses through the y-axis)

    x = the number of weeks she mows the lawn

    y = the amount of money in Jana’s savings account

    y = 25x + 125    

    [amount of money in savings account(y) = $125 plus $25 per week(x)]

    y-intercept = 125

    So if x = 0 weeks and y = $125 in the savings account, $125 was already/initially in the savings account before she started earning and depositing $25 per week. Your answer is C
