For Kentucky residents, the average tuition per year at the University of Kentucky is $258.15 per credit hour for part-time students. Housing costs $2125 per year. Write an equation in slope-intercept form for the tuition T for c credit hours. I understand slope-intercept form, but I don't understand how to transfer this into that.

    For the record I know how to write things in slope-intercept form, but I just don't understand how to make this into it.

    y = tuitionX + housing? I'm sorry I just don't understand.

    So y = t(x) + c? Since t is tuition and c is credit hours.

    You're sure? This equation just doesn't seem anything like the others. But I have been doing a lot of math today and I'm kind of burned out and tired.

    T is for tuition not y in original c is your x the credit hours

    It just doesn't seem right because wouldn't t be the total, and c be the number of credits, so times the $258.15? It seems like it should maybe be y = 258.15c + t I don't know.

    I see but in the assignment it says to use c as the credit hours.

    I don't understand it just makes no sense to me.

    T(c) = 258.15c + 2125

    Okay I see now. So that would be how I'd write it in the assignment?
