    He will? He's too busy not playing :( :D We want a function that tells you exactly how many hours Peter (that's weird >.>) has played given the number of weeks that has passed, since his parents made sure he only plays five hours for every week, ok? ^.^

    Close, but no dice ^.^ f(x) = 10 If you notice, there's no x in this equation. That means the number of hours he's played would be 10, regardless of how many weeks has passed, and if Peter's the kind of boy I think he is, I don't think that's true, he's gonna make the most of the five hours he's allowed to play, right?

    Think about it, at the beginning of what I like to call the 'eight weeks of punishment' he's going to play five hours, so at the end of the FIRST week, how many hours would he have played?
