10. A small office unit is to contain 100 ft2 of floor space. A simplified model is shown in the figure. (a) Use an equation to express the length y of the building in terms of the width x. (b) If the walls cost $500 per running foot, use an equation to express the cost C of the walls in terms of the width x. (Disregard the wall space above the doors and the thickness of the walls.)

    Okay we know the floor area of the office is 100 ft^2. The area is given by A=length*width So let x=width and y=length A=x*y We know that the area is 100 so, 100=xy Now that you know the equation can you rewrite this so that y is in terms of x?
