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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you transport 0 tons of sugar, what is the cost in other words, if S = 0, then C = ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1replace S with 0 and evaluate C = 150*S + 3900 C = 150*0 + 3900 C = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to graph `C = 150S + 3900`, you plot the two points `(0,3900)` and `(1,4050)` then draw a straight line through the two points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But on the graph I provided there is not a 3900 or 4050

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah 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
