The Sugar Sweet Company is going to transport its sugar to market. It will cost $3900 to rent trucks, and it will cost an additional $150 for each ton of sugar transported. Let C represent the total cost (in dollars), and let S represent the amount of sugar (in tons) transported. Write an equation relating C to S , and then graph your equation using the axes below.

3900+150s Thats what I got so far
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
good, C = 150S + 3900

  • jim_thompson5910
let's set up another T table with S being in place of x, C in place of y |dw:1442297366583:dw|

if you transport 0 tons of sugar, what is the cost in other words, if S = 0, then C = ??

Im not sure
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
replace S with 0 and evaluate C = 150*S + 3900 C = 150*0 + 3900 C = ???

(1,4050)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
correct
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
to graph `C = 150S + 3900`, you plot the two points `(0,3900)` and `(1,4050)` then draw a straight line through the two points
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I would click on the "How do I plot a point anywhere on the graph" (under the quick help) if you aren't sure how to type in the coordinates

But on the graph I provided there is not a 3900 or 4050

  • anonymous
oh okay thanks!
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah I wouldn't do it visually. I'd type in the numbers in an input box. I'm not sure how your system works though
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes just like you said. I found how it works. Thanks jim!

ok great, you're welcome
