The Hydro water department has a monthly service charge of $14.40 and a volume charge of $1.10 for every 100 cubic feet of water.
The total monthly cost is equal to the service charge plus the charge for the volume used during the month. If we let x represent the number of cubic feet of water (in hundreds) and y represent the total monthly cost, then we have:
