1. The slope of the ∆Q relationship is defined by which is the change in output divided by the change ∆N in the number of nurses (the symbol ∆ is used to designate the difference). 1 shows how it can be calculated directly from the graph. 1 The slope of a straight line Movement 50 nurses to 75 nurses 150 nurses to 175 nurses Slope Q N = 300 − 200 =4 75 − 50 Q 700 − 600 = =4 N 175 − 150 For a straight-line graph the slope is always the same over the entire length of the line. In an equation of the type Y = bX (in this case Q = 4N) or Y = a + bX, the constant b (in this case 4) is always equal to the slope of Y with respect to X (in this case Q with respect to N).

If you spend the whole evening studying then you might find that over the course of the evening your concentration might decline, you are gradually taking in less and less of the reading and you miss having some company.
