Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your rate of cost is .8x where x is how many loaves of bread you make. Your startup cost is the amount of the machine $100 so your equation is y=.8x+100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kay you need to form an equation. Remember that in algebra, you use letters or symbols to represent different parts of the equation. In this case, you have a constant. No matter how many slices or loaves of bread you make, you still have to pay $100 for the machine. Any equation for this situation then is going to have to include +$100. If the cost of each loaf of bread is $0.80, your equation will be (for the cost of making loaves of bread): C = $0.80n + 100 Where n is the number of loaves you want. If you want the cost of one loaf, it is simply ($0.80 x 1) + 100 which equals $100.80. If you wanted the cost of two loaves of bread it would be ($0.80 x 2) + 100 which equals $101.60, etc.
