Y= number of vats required. Write an equation using y that can be used to determine the total amount of an order. All orders are billed $30 for shipping, and all orders have a 6% sales tax added to the total order. Vats are $400 each. Can anyone walk me through this?

    y=424x+30 but I wonder what "total" order means...if it includes that $30....probably not....

    by finding that number, i should be able to find the total dollar amount of the order

    yes, if they order 5 vats; then y = 424(5) + 30 = something......
