    Let

    t——-> the time in minutes

    y——> the distance from home for an ant in feet

    we know that

    y = 4t + 2

    In this linear equation

    the slope m is equal to

    m = 4 \frac{feet}{minute}

    The y-intercept is equal to——–> 2

    in this problem the y-intercept is the value of the distance in feet when the value of the time in minutes is zero

    so

    The y-intercept is equal to——–> 2 feet

    therefore

    the answer is the option

    D. The ant started out 2 feet from its home
