## Answers ( No )

The distance and ant travels after leaving its mound per minute.

Let

t——-> the time in minutes

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

we know that

y = 4t + 2In this linear equation

the slope m is equal to

m = 4

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

feettherefore

the answer is the optionD. The ant started out 2 feet from its home
