Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1she knows that \(f(x) = (3x+2)/4 \) gives the cost, when u put number of messages x into the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, if u have texted 10 messages cost wud be : f(10 ) = (3(10)+2)/4 = 32/4 = 8 so it wil cost u $8 just to text 10 msgs... pretty costly !!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but thats not wat we want, here our task is to find a function, into which we can plugin the MONEY we have, and it should tell us how many TEXTS we can message

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1given equaiton : \(y = f(x) = (3x+2)/4 \) here, x is number of texts, y is dollars

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since you wanto know how many texts u can send, you need to solve x above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(y = (3x+2)/4\) solve x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would I start off ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply 4 both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(y = (3x+2)/4\) multiply 4 both sides \(4y = 3x+2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next, subtract 2 both sides

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(y=(3x+2)/4 \) multiply 4 both sides \(4y=3x+2\) subtract 2 both sides \(4y2 = 3x\) divide 3 both sides \(\large \frac{4y2}{3} = x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, replace x and y (just do it, il tell you later why :))

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1replace x & y \(\large \frac{4x2}{3} = y \) \(\large y = \frac{4x2}{3} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Isn't it to put the equation in the correct form ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats the required function, where u need to plugin x=$24, and it gives u number of text messages u can send !

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1exactly ! you're right, we replace x and y, to put the function in right form :)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1put x = 24, and see how many messages she can send

LaynaMae

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait so that's the answer ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes thats the required function ! since the question wants u to explain, explain wat we did so far :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1btw, for $24, she can send : \(\large y = \frac{4x2}{3}\) \(\large y = \frac{4(24)2}{3}\) \(=33\)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, that should be 31, so she can send 31 messages

LaynaMae

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So with $24 she can send 33 text messages ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay :) So everything we just worked through is the answer basically ? Because it says to put in complete sentences
