# 25 x + y = 5 # 47 x 3y #55 3
-- = --- y = --x --2
2 5 4

Write a formula that describes the function for each of the following.

# 7 A small pizza cost $ 5.00 plus 50 cents for each topping Express the total cost C as a function of the number of topping t.

#9 The sales tax rate on groceries in Mayberry is 9%. Express the total cost T ( including tax ) as a function of the total price of the groceries S.

Find the slope and y-intercept for each line that has a slope and y-intercept

# 25 x + y = 5

Y = 5 -x

Slope = -1, and y-intercept = 5

47)

y =

Since this would give us a horizontal line, then the slope = 0, no y-intercept

55) y =

Slope = ¾, y-intercept = -2
