Part A: Sam rented a boat at $225 for 2 days. If he rents the same boat for 5 days, he has to pay a total rent of $480.
Write an equation in the standard form to represent the total rent (y) that Sam has to pay for renting the boat for x days. (4 points)
Part B: Write the equation obtained in Part A using function notation.(2 points)
Part C: Describe the steps to graph the equation obtained above on the coordinate axes. Mention the labels on the axes and the intervals. (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what equation did you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 85x + 55 is in the form y = mx+b m is your slope b is the yintercept Since b = 55, this means you plot the point (0,55). Basically the point at 55 on the vertical y axis. This equation is a line, so you need 2 points. To get the next point, we use the slope 85 = 85/1 is the slope. The "85" up top means we move up 85 units, then we move 1 unit to the right to land on (1,140) So this graph is a straight line that goes through (0,55) and (1,140)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it is not that easy because the scale will have to be different for the y and the x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1plot the point (1,140) this point is found by going up 85 units, then to the right 1 unit dw:1440126118938:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1after you get those two points, you draw a straight line through them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2looks like you are being asked "how to graph it" i would start by saying put \((0,55)\) as the y intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there should really be nothing to the left of 0, because the situation only makes sense for positive values of x (they are numbers of days)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is just something to plot you could plot \((0,55)\) and \((2,225)\) and \((5,480)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can also think of it like this y = 85x + 55 y = 85*1 + 55 ... replace x with 1 y = 85 + 55 y = 140 that work shown above tells us that when x = 1, y = 140. So that's another way to get the ordered pair (1,140) as misty1212 points out, other ordered pairs like (2,225) and (5,480) lie on the graph too. you can move along the line using the slope or plug in the x values to get corresponding y values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try out x = 4 for instance. If you were to plug that into y = 85x + 55, what do you get for the value of y?
