Pizza Palace Equation: y=9.25x+61.25
Point of Intersection: At 55 people, it will cost $570 for both companies
Describe how you created each equation.
Based on the information, I got the equation of y=10x+20. For Pizza Palace, I knew it cost $9.25 per person so the $9.25 would be the rate of change. I also knew the x would be the amount of people. The flyer said there was a $61.25 set up fee so I knew that was the y intercept. From this information, I got the equation of y=9.25x+61.25.
Will there be a number of students where both companies will cost the same?
If you only have a budget of $1000 for food, how many people, maximum, would you be able to have at the 7th Grade Blowout for each company?
Hoppin' Around Equation: y=75x
Point of Intersection: At 4 hours, both companies will cost $300.
