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.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay 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?
