Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0An appliance company uses the function f(h) = 40h + 120 to calculate the total repair bill, f(h), for h number of hours worked. Find h if f(h) = $200.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The function represents a mathematical expression that models the outcome. Right ? So the parameter that models this function is called 'h' for hours. The function models the Appliance company's repair bill . Since the relationship for the output and the input are equivalent , then we can apply algebra to determine the solution . if F(h) = 200 F(h) = 40*h +120 then 200 Dollars is billed for the repair for 'h' hours of service 200 = 40*h +120 Both statements above are equivalent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solving for h, Subtract 200 = 40*h +120 120 120 80 = 40*h divide h= 80/40 h= 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1200 represents the amount of money for 'h' hours of service h represents the number of hours serviced the two are distinct ! However the Service bill DEPENDS on hours To be correct in the mathematical language Bill of service or f(h) is the dependent variable and h is the Independent variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the reason I wrote all this junk down is so that it furthers your understand of a function , how the relationship of the input determines output and identifying what the variable represent ! please try applying this next time
