# Write A Linear Function Word Problems Worksheet

## 6 problems

It involves describing a real-life situation where there is a constant rate of change. It requires identifying variables, setting up a linear equation in the form $$y = mx + b$$ (where $$m$$ is the slope and $$b$$ is the y-intercept), and then solving for unknowns. These problems can include scenarios like calculating total cost given a fixed fee and a variable charge per unit, or predicting distance over time at a constant speed.

## How to Write a Linear Function Word Problems?

• Decide what your variables will represent, such as hours worked for $$x$$ and total money earned for $$y$$.
• Understand how the variables are related using a simple linear equation $$y = mx + b$$, where $$m$$ is the rate of change and $$b$$ is the starting value.

## Solved Example

Q. Larry is on his school's cross-country team. He runs $8$ miles during each practice. Write an equation that shows the relationship between the number of practices Larry attends, $x$, and the total number of miles he runs, $y$.
Solution:
1. Identify values: Identify the given values. Larry runs $8$ miles per practice. Number of practices: $x$ $\newline$Total miles run: $y$
2. Write equation: Write the equation for total miles run. $\newline$Total miles = $\text{Miles per practice} \times \text{Number of practices}$ $\newline$$y = 8x$
