Last week, Hazel paid $32 to have $40 reports printed. This week, she paid $57 to have $100 printed. Assume the relationship is linear.
Which equation models the relationship between the numbers of reports,x, and the cost, y?
*PLEASE EXPLAIN, because I keep getting the same answer but it's not one of the choices.
