please i need help on this one
Barbara buys a box of pens for $4. For every additional box she buys, she gets a $1 discount. Which expression represents the total cost of the pens, c, as a function of the number of boxes, b?
c = f(b) = 4b – 1
c = f(b) = 4b + 1
c = f(b) = 3b + 4
c = f(b) = 4b + 3
c = f(b) = 4 + 3(b – 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, it's kind of a problem, since... 5 boxes  5($4.00  $4.00) = $0.00 If you buy five (5), they are FREE!!!! One should clarify the problem statement with the original author.
