PROFIT GAIN/LOSS WORKSHEET (correct student work)
J House Media recently changed their charge amounts and began to use new software that costs \$750.

Q1. If J House Media now charges \$65 per hour spent on a website answer the following:

1. Write a new linear equation and graph the new function. Also graph the function that would deal only with hour/money, in other words leave out the software price.
1. Identify the slope and the y intercept for both equations.

Q2. Looking at the graph when it takes a.) 10 hours b.)12 hours c.) 15 hours to complete a website predict how much the company would make. (Go back and check your number algebraically)

Q3. Using the following table, figure out if the company made a profit gain in the design process and the programming process of creating their website.  After you have found if it was a loss or a gain explain what the department did right or wrong.

 PREDICTED ACTUAL COLLABORATION 10.43 9.10 DESIGN 11.25 7.50 PROGRAMMING 17.01 18.12 DEBUGGING 12.23 10.00 TOTAL 50.92 44.72

Q4. Now look at the chart as a whole.  Overall did the company have a profit gain or loss?  If the company had a loss what could they do differently so that they would have a profit gain?

Q5. When calculating gain and loss you normally put the equation inside an absolute value.  For our work why have we left it out?
