Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I assume the relationship is linear in the form y = mx +c If (5,4) is on the line we can calculate the equation gradient m = change in y over change in x, = 4/5 y = 4/5 * x +c 4 = 4/5 * 5 +c c = 0 y = 4/5 x Part a if x = 1 then y = 4/5 part b is 2 times (5,4) so 10 pounds of potatoes cost 8 dollers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1finally, the ordered pair (10,8) represent the point which I get if I consider 10 pounds of potatoes, and which cost is 8 dollars. Infact the costs of 1 pound of potatoes is 0.8 dollars, so the cost of 10 pounds of potatorùes is 0.8*10=8 dollars
