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
