Algebra: is this right?

posted by .

the amount of money remaining to be paid on a loan, y, is a function of the number of months, x. Suppose that
monthly payments of $225 are to be made on an original loan
amount of $3,000.
Write an expression in terms of x that gives the amount of money remaining to be paid.

$3,000 - $225x

  • Algebra: is this right? -

    The expression is correct.

    The complete mathematical relationship including the function y(x) is:

    y(x) = 3000 - 225x

    State that the unit of y(x) is in dollars, and x represents the number of monthly payments made.

    Note: the above assumes zero interest rate.
