52. Business and finance. In planning for a new item, a manufacturer assumes that
the number of items produced x and the cost in dollars C of producing these items
are related by a linear equation. Projections are that 100 items will cost \$10,000 to
produce and that 300 items will cost \$22,000 to produce. Find the equation that
relates C and x.
