    Actually you have more information than is necessary.
    "it cost $2 per day to place a one-line ad in the classifieds plus a flat service fee" ---> y = 2x + b
    "one day cost $3 " ---> x = 1, y = 3
    3 = 2(1) + b
    b = 1
    equation: y = 2x + 1
    (check: 4 days cost $9,
    y = 2(4) + 1 = 9, Check!

    so for 6 days
    y = 2(6) + 1 = $13
