The following graph shows a linear model that approximates the relationship between the size of a home and how much it costs. The

*x*-axis represents size in square feet, and the*y*-axis represents cost in dollars. Calculate the slope and the*y*-intercept of the linear model, and describe what these values mean in terms of housing prices.- Find the equation of the linear fit.
- Determine the units of the slope.
- Describe what the slope means in context.
- Determine the units of the
*y*-intercept. - Describe what the
*y-*intercept means in context.
