    The cost, C dollars, to produce a school yearbook is given by the equation  

    C = 7,500 + 8n,  where n is the number of yearbooks printed.  

    a)

    What does each term on the right side of the equation represent?       

    n represents the number of copies of the yearbook printed and       

    7,500 is the basic cost 

    b) Suppose there is $11,500 to  spend on yearbooks.       

    How many yearbooks can be purchased?       

    c)

    How many yearbooks can be produced for $20 000?  

          

    d)

    How much would 700 yearbooks cost?

    C=7500+8n

    11,500 = 7500 + 8n

    -7500 from both sides

    4,000 = 8n

    divide both sides by 8, n = 500 books

    ===

    C is total Cost

    $7,500 is the fixed cost

    $8 iss the cost per book

    n is the number of books

    7500...fixed costs , 8 is cost per book , n = number of books .....n = [ 11500 - 7500] / 8...YOU do the computations
