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.

    basically, you want to write two points (40,32) and (100,57) and write an equation for those two points

    I think you switched x and y when you were writing your equation

    slope = (57-32)/(100-40)

    all the answers are in multiple choice. and they're all in slope-intercept form. and my answer, that i've redone a bunch of times now, is the same but it's not one of them.
