Straight lines - Merit Mahobe

A new experimental diet for hens determines that the average weight (grams) of a hen can increase in a linear fashion over a period of 50 days. The average mass of a hen starting the diet is 150 grams. After 30 days the average mass is 690 grams. Draw a graph and give the equation for this situation.

Use your equation to find the average weight of a hen after 10 days.

A supermarket wants a shipment of chickens that have a mass of 1 kg. When will the hens reach this weight?
