    For 1 cupcake, Katie paid y = (3/2)*1 = $1.50 Looking at the Cake Me table of values, observe that when the number of cupcakes increases by 1, the cost increases by $1.75. You may want to verify that. For 1 cupcake, Sarah paid $1.75. With that information, select the two correct options. Post what you get if you'd like for someone to check your answer. @sarahvega
