Homework Help: Math Word Problems

Posted by Lisa on Friday, September 14, 2007 at 4:23pm.

Citydog Screen Printers received two orders for a t-shirt designed for a math symposium. The first order was for 40 shirts at a total cost of $295 and the second order was for an additional 80 shirts at a total cost of $565. Each order included a shipping and handling charge.

Then we have to writer a linear equation, for which I got: y-27/4x+25. We also had to find the cost per t-shirt, for which I got: $31.75. The last part I don't understand, however: fidn the shipping and handling charge.

If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

The second word problem is:
It costs Consolidated Cereals Corporation $1050 to produce 100 boxes of corn flakes and $1250 to produce 500 boxes. I found the cost function: c(x)=1/2x+1000 but don't know how to determine the fixed cost and the variable cost per box (mainly because I have no idea what those are.)

Once again, thanks in advance.
