Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05x = 30 is the equation for if you were solving how many albums can be purchased with $30 and only $30 \(y=\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }x\) tells how many albums you can buy for every amount of money within your domain

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you!! How do I go from the original situation to the answer, though?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need two variables, y and x, because both the amount of money and the amount of albums purchased can vary. It looks like they let x be the amount of money and y be the number of albums that can be bought. The slope is 1/6. \[slope=\frac{ rise }{ run }=\frac{ \Delta y }{ \Delta x }=\frac{ 5~albums }{ 30~dollars }=\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }~albums~per~dollar\]
