Anything that includes constant rate of change…like in the example the total cost of the phone plan rises at a constant rate as more minutes are used…other examples include distance travelled while moving at a constant speed, or age of a person over yeaes

I believe we are looking for a system of equations. Meaning, more than one so that we can find an intersection point. So, like a previous poster commented, but two of them. Like 2 vehicles leaving at different times and at different speeds on the same path. When will they meet? Will they ever meet. Systems of equations answer those questions.

Thank you so much! This was very helpful! ☺️
