1. Suppose you belong to a tennis club that has a monthly fee of $100 and a charge of $5 per hour to play. Prepare a table and draw a curve to show the relationship between the hours of tennis (on the horizontoal axis) and the monthly club bill (on the vertical axis). For the table and graph use 5, 10, 15, and 20 hours of tennis.

Find the slope of the curve per ______.

The slope of the curve is ______ per ______.
