#### Storyboard Text

• Billy and Linear Equation Boy go on a long road trip to Dallas, Texas. They will be traveling to help and save homeless people.﻿ They leave tomorrow morning
• How many miles is it to Dallas?﻿
• ﻿How many miles per hour?
• ﻿Well, that is called slope. Slope is the steepness of the line. For example, we would be traveling about 70 miles per 1 hour while we are on our way to Dallas because if we divide our distance and time, you get your speed, which in this case, it would be 70 miles
• About 1,200 miles and 17 hours to get to there﻿
• Ok, so slope is the amount of distance we travel in an amount of time?﻿
• Yes, correct.﻿
• 5 hours later﻿
• ﻿So with that slope thing, is there something else to do with that?
• Oh, that's cool.﻿
• Yes, there is. It is called the y-intercept, which is the starting point of the line. For example, our y-intercept is 0, because we are staying at a constant rate at 70 miles per hour, which is 70/1.﻿
• 1 hour later﻿
• Ima die man﻿. YOU NEED TO STOP!
• Is there a rest stop nearby? I have to use the restroom very bad.﻿
• No, not for another 20 min.﻿
• ﻿Thats better. How much longer until we get to Dallas?
• At the rest stop﻿
• About another 9-10 hours. It's a long drive.﻿
