The sugar sweet company is going to transport its sugar to market. It will cost $6250.00 to rent trucks, and it will cost an additional $250.00 for each ton of sugar transported. Let C represent the total cost (in dollars), and let S represent the amount of sugar (in tons) transported. Write an equation relating C to S, and then graph your equation.

    c=6250.00+250.00s

    y = 250x + 6250 That is the equation and then if you know how much sugar is being transported that would take the place of the x and then you multiply it by 250 and then add 6250 to that and you would get your answer. You can't really graph it unless you know what x is. Hope this is what you were looking for :)

    Instead of using the x and y you would just make it: c = 250s + 6250

    how would I graph this? The C-intercept (y) is 6250 and the slope is 250. So mark a point on the C-axis that is 6 marks + 1/4 mark (6250). That is the y-intercept. Then use the slope to get to another point. Even though the slope is 250, you can rise 1000 and run 4 (1000/4 = 250).

    Oh gosh, I'm horrible at graphing :( I don't know how to do that but here's a site you might find useful if you ever need to graph some things to find an answer: http://my.hrw.com/math06_07/nsmedia/tools/Graph_Calculator/graphCalc.html
