A company rents riding equipment for a fixed amount plus a fee based on the number of days for which the equipment is rented. The table shows the total charges, y, in dollars, of renting riding equipment for x number of days:
Riding Equipment Rentals
Number of days
(x) Total Charges in dollars
(y)
0 6
1 16
2 26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Barney wants to rent a tent. He has to pay a fixed base cost plus a daily rate for renting the tent. The table shows the amount of money, y, in dollars, that Barney has to pay for renting the tent for x days: Tent Rental Number of days (x) Rent (dollars) (y) 0 3 1 8 2 13 3 18 4 23 Which equation best shows the relationship between x and y? y = 5x + 3 y = x + 8 y = 5x + 8 y = x + 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your equation will be in the form y = mx + b let's find m first. when x increases by 1, what value does y increase by?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1every y value increases by a certain number each time, what is that number?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great, so that means our m value (slope) is 5 so right now we have y = 5x + b, now let's find b b is the y value when x = 0, so what is b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1m = 5, since y increases by 5 every time x increases by 1 right now, we have y = 5x + b, now we need to find b b is the y value when x = 0, so what is b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, so b = 3 putting everything together: y = mx + b = 5x + 3 and that's our answer
