Dear YMG Community,
It is with pleasure to update you with the following developments:
The last couple of months, YMG has been engaged in fulfilling its duty to the first batch of 25 YMG scholars. My dedicated team worked hard to ensure that each scholar gets the award he or she deserves. We did this by contacting each of their schools and paying for their fees. Unfortunately, it did not go smoothly in certain cases, as schools have strict protocols and at times were just uncooperative. Nonetheless, YMG remains committed in helping the community and its scholars achieve the promise of accessible education through the YMG Scholarship Program (YMGSP).
Unbeknownst to everyone, the YMG website just went thru a major housekeeping. Certain key features have been upgraded to better cater the on-going application for the second and future batches of the YMGSP. With this upgrade, evaluating and selecting the next batch of YMG scholars becomes more efficient. However, due to a recent server upgrade, receiving applications was temporarily put to a halt. At this time, the YMG website is fully functional and is again ready to receive applications.
In order for our aspiring YMG scholars to complete their application, and to give us ample time in evaluating a lot of applications and at the same time assisting our existing YMG scholars, I, together with my Executive Board, decided to push the deadline for the second batch of the YourMathGuru Scholarship Program to November 30, 2015. This gives everyone the sufficient time they need.
Thank you very much for everyone’s continuing support. The YMG family has indeed evolved from being a simple online forum to a growing, socially aware and mathematics-driven community.
Always in service,
Engr. Alex Argimón
Founder and CEO

y=mx+b models the average retail price, y, of a new car x years after 2000. Would you expect m to be positive, negative, or zero? Explain your answer.
Help is appreciated.

m,which is the slope of a straight line on the Cartesian plane, with b being the y-intercept, can, theoretically, be any of those 3 (negative, positive, zero). If it were negative, prices would be going down, which would be the normal trend in market value. If it were zero it meant that the price would remain constant as well as if it were positive it meant that the price would increase, both of which would be unlikely…..except for antque cars LOL…. After about 25 years, the price could go UP if the car is maintained in good shape.
