The total cost of purchasing from a mailorder catalog, y, is a function of the cost of the items purchased, x. In addition there is a fixed shipping charge of 2.75 per order, and sales tax is 8%. Write an equation that shows the relationship between the quantities. I have problems with standard story problems. HELP.

Would it be .08x + 2.75=0
