Q.

If chocolate chip cookies cost \$3.00 per cookie plus \$2 for boxing them up in a decorated box, what would the expression be?

y = 3 + 2x

y = 3x + 2

y = 3x + 2x

y = 5x

• Question 2

Q.

A plumber charges \$50 to make a house call plus \$40 for each hour worked. Write an equation to represent this situation.

y = 50x + 40

y = 50x + 40x

y = 50 + 40x

y = 90x

Q. Speedy Boat Rental charges a \$15 deposit fee plus \$2 for each hour of use to rent a paddle boat.  Write an equation for C, the total cost, to rent the boat for h hours.
h = 2C + 15
C = 15h + 2
h = 15C + 2
C = 2h + 15

Q. The Roaming Cell Phone Company charges \$15.00 per month plus \$0.20 per minute of airtime usage.  If Juanita uses x minutes of airtime, what is an equation that can be used to determine her monthly cell phone bill (C)?
C = 15 + 0.20x
C =15 (0.20x)
C = 15 + x + 0.20
C = 0.20 + 15x

Q.

Bob's Plumbing charges \$15 per hour plus a service fee of \$40 for coming out to your house. Which equation models this situation?

y = 15x + 40

y = 40x + 15

y = 15x

y = 15x - 40

• Question 6

Q.

Dexter's Gym charges a one-time registration fee of \$40 and \$20 each month. The total fee after x months is \$340. Which equation models this situation?

40x + 20 = 340

20x + 40 = 340

20x - 40 = 340

20 + 340 = 40x

• Question 7

Q.

Scott's Automotive charges \$35 for each car plus \$7 per hour. Write an equation that represents this scenario if Kylie was charged \$63.

35x + 7 = 63

7x = 63

7x - 35 = 63

7x + 35 = 63

• Question 8

Q.

A holiday meal cost \$12.50 a person plus a delivery fee of \$30. Which equation represents the amount a holiday meal costs(y), including delivery, for x people?

y = 12.50 + 30x

y = 30 + 12.50x

y = 12.50 + 30

12.50x = 30

• Question 9

Q.

Mrs. Besonen took her kids to see Frozen 2. She bought the big popcorn bucket for \$10 and then \$1.50 for every refill. Write an equation to represent this situation.

y = 1.50 + 10x

y = 1.5x + 10

y = 1.50 + 10

1.50x = 10
