1. Describe how you created each equation.

I put the numbers in the y=mx+b equation format and typed it at the to the graph.

2. Will there ever be a number of students where both companies will cost the same? Describe the steps you would use and then solve for the number of students for which both companies will cost the same amount. Yes there is , at 100 people the coast is the same.

The first step is to create and fill in the table. After you create and fill in the table you look at when the numbers are the same.

3. 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? Can you have a decimal or fraction as part of your answer? Why or why not? 100 students and staff could come because at that point the coast the same. No you cannot have a decimal point because you can’t have of a person.

Plan: Get pizza palace if 50 or more students and staff show up. But if only 49 or less students and staff show up than get burger bonanza.
