1 Answer

  • Answer:

    C = 6 + 7.5 x

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    The amount is $24.75 for entrance and 2.5 kilograms of strawberries.

    ⇒ Entrance fee + 2.5 kilograms of strawberries = $24.75

    Since, Entrance fee = $ 6,

    And,  the price for each kilogram of strawberries is constant.

    ⇒  $ 6 + 2.5 × 1 kilograms of strawberries = $24.75

    ⇒ 2.5 × 1 kilograms of strawberries = 18.75

    ⇒ 1 kilograms of strawberries = $ 7.5.

    Thus, the cost of x  strawberries = 7.5 x

    Also, the total charge for x strawberries = Entrance fee + the cost of x  strawberries

    = 6 + 7.5 x

    ⇒ C = 6 + 7.5 x

    Which is the required function formula.
