$1.50 plus an additional $1.25 for each night she keeps the movie. Choose the cost function that represents this scenario if x = the number of nights Michelle has the movie.
A) c(x) = 1.50 + 1.25x
B) c(x) = 1.50x + 1.25
C) c(x) = 2.75
D) c(x) = (1.50 + 1.25)x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, and now, since it's the only value that varies, we can say for sure that the first 1.50 are the initial ones, so thereby: \[f(x)=1.50+1.25x\] Where "x" represents the nights she has the movie.
