## neel001 3 years ago John wants to rent a tent to go camping. The cost to rent a tent from Woodland Outfitters is a flat rate of \$10.00 plus \$0.50 for each night the tent is rented. Part a. Let x represent the number of nights John keeps the tent and write a cost function, c(x), for the cost to rent a tent from Woodland Outfitters. Part b. How much will John owe if he uses the tent for five nights?

1. neel001

need help

2. Chlorophyll

The cost = \$10.00 plus \$0.50 for each night How do you write the function for cost here?

3. neel001

umm idk

4. Chlorophyll

with x represent the number of nights

5. neel001

yea

6. Chlorophyll

so,...

7. neel001

idk can u explain it to me

8. neel001

n show the work

9. Chlorophyll

Suppose you want to buy 2 ice cream at the price of \$5 each => how much do you pay?

10. neel001

10

11. Chlorophyll

Then same basic concept here: 2 ice cream at the price of \$5 each x represent the number of nights and \$0.50 for each night Do you see what operation to connect them?

12. neel001

umm idk

13. neel001

14. Chlorophyll

What did you do to get 10 ?

15. neel001

16. Chlorophyll

How about you want to buy 100 ice creams, then how much do you pay?

17. neel001

200

18. Chlorophyll

How do you get 200?

19. neel001

can answer the question plzz and show the work cuz im in hurry please thank you very much.

20. neel001

21. neel001

yes

@Chlorophyll got a good point there, if you do have 2 ice creams for \$5 each you can say 5+5 or 5x2, right? 3 ice creams will cost 5+5+5 or 5x3 4 ice creams will cost 5+5+5+5, which is the same thing as 5x4 100 ice creams will cost 5+5+5+5+.... (till you reach 100) = 5x100 What it the number that is changing when I'm writing it in the multiplication form? Not the 5, but the 2, 3, 4, 100, etc.... right? So you can represent the number of ice creams you buy with a variable, because it is always changing! Let's call that variable x, so the ice cream cost can be represented by 5x. Where x=the # of ice creams you buy. But now, instead of buying ice cream, we're renting a tent. A tent costs \$0.50 for each night, so how can you represent how much you will spend if you rent it for x nights?

whoa!! can jux tell me the answer n show the work plzz ik yall cant give like that but plzz im in hurry
