Initially a pool contains 350 gallons of water. A hose is placed in the pool and the water is turned on. The hose adds 5.2 gallons of water per minute. Model the total amount, V, of water in the pool for x, the number of minutes the hose has been on.

A)

V(x) = 5.2x

B)

V(x) = 350x - 5.2

C)

V(x) = 350x + 5.2

D)

V(x) = 5.2x + 350
