Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Javier has a job installing windows. He earns a rate of $75 per day plus $8 per window installed. He also receives a stipend of $25 for snacks. Javier knows his weekly earnings can be shown with the following expression: 75d + 8w + 25 Part A: Identify a coefficient, a variable, and a constant in this expression. (3 points) Part B: If Javier works for 5 days and installs 48 windows, how much does he earn? Show your work to receive full credit. (4 points) Part C: If Javier gets an increase in his stipend and receives $40 for snacks, would the coefficient, variable, or constant in the equation change? Why? (3 points) (10 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part A: A Coefficient is a number accompanying a variable so we can say 75 or 8. For a variable we have d and w. The only constant here is his snacking money which is 25! Part B: You need to show work here, remember! \[(75*5) + (8*48) + 25 = 784\] Part C: We already identified what his snack money is! Ask questions if you don't understand something here!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's start by breaking down the equation: 75d + 8w + 25 What do we call the "d" and the "w"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bingo! Now what about the 75 in front of the d, and the 8 in front of the w?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right again, so now the +25 at the end is what?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if we look back at the word problem we can see the constant of 25 is his snacks! So, if we increase his snacking stipend we thus increase the constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so the constant would then be 40 instead of 25
