HELP!!!!
The cost of craft beads varies directly with the number purchased. Write an equation relating cost and beads purchased. Use the equation to find the number of 8 beads purchased.
So what is the price of 1 bead?
Let c = Cost of craft beads and let n equal number purchased and let k equal the cost of each bead. Because the relationship is a direct one, the equation would be c = kn This direct relationship means that when one side increases, teh other side also increases. Likewise, when one decrease, the other also decreases. This means they are directly related.
