"Patty's Pet Company charges $0.55 per pound to ship pet supplies."
how much does it cost to ship exactly 1 pound of pet supplies?

- anonymous

.26

- jim_thompson5910

how are you getting that?

- anonymous

.55/2

- jim_thompson5910

"$0.55 per pound" means "$0.55 for each pound" or "$0.55 for one pound"

- anonymous

.55*2 =1.10

- jim_thompson5910

1 pound simply costs $0.55
you're overthinking

- anonymous

ok

- jim_thompson5910

how about 7 pounds? how much does that cost?

- anonymous

3.85

- jim_thompson5910

and how did you get that?

- anonymous

.55*7

- jim_thompson5910

so in general, if we don't know the amount of pounds, we can just say it's p
so the general cost is 0.55*p
agreed?

- anonymous

yes

- jim_thompson5910

so that's why the cost equation is
c = 0.55*p

- jim_thompson5910

"Use your equation to determine the cost of shipping 2 pounds of pet supplies. "
now plug in p = 2 into that cost equation

- anonymous

c=.55*2 = 1.10

- jim_thompson5910

correct

- anonymous

Part B would be c = .50*2?

- jim_thompson5910

close

- jim_thompson5910

they say nothing about p being 2 though

- anonymous

c=.50*p

- jim_thompson5910

correct

- anonymous

Don't i need to work it out are just leave it as the equation ?

- anonymous

.50*1.10?

- jim_thompson5910

they just want c = 0.50p for part B

- anonymous

got it thanks

- jim_thompson5910

no problem
