Marge runs an ice cream parlor. Her specialty is triple chocolate sundaes. She can prepare 1 sundae every 2 minutes, and she earns $1.20 for each sundae she makes. If she just makes sundaes for a single shift of at most 4 hours and at least 2 hours, which function relates her earnings to the number of minutes she works?

    remember, you want to relate earnings to number of minutes she works. So we know she works for 2 - 4 hrs right? So we need to convert 2 and 4 hrs to minutes. Also we know she earns $1.20 for each sundae she makes. She takes 2 minutes to make 1 sundae... therefore if x = sundae, 1.20 ( x/2) ^ here we have earning times how many sundaes she can produce per minute.
