    she knows that \(f(x) = (3x+2)/4 \) gives the cost, when u put number of messages x into the equation

    for 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 !!

    but 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

    given equaiton :- \(y = f(x) = (3x+2)/4 \) here, x is number of texts, y is dollars

    since you wanto know how many texts u can send, you need to solve x above.

    \(y = (3x+2)/4\) solve x

    4(3x+2) ?

    \(y = (3x+2)/4\) multiply 4 both sides \(4y = 3x+2\)

    • 7 months ago

    next, subtract 2 both sides

    Medals 1

    \(y=(3x+2)/4 \) multiply 4 both sides \(4y=3x+2\) subtract 2 both sides \(4y-2 = 3x\) divide 3 both sides \(\large \frac{4y-2}{3} = x\)

    Isn't it to put the equation in the correct form ?

    thats the required function, where u need to plugin x=$24, and it gives u number of text messages u can send !

    btw, for $24, she can send :- \(\large y = \frac{4x-2}{3}\) \(\large y = \frac{4(24)-2}{3}\) \(=33\)
