The equation y= 12x + 5 shows the total cost for ordering tickets on the phone for a certain outdoor concert.
Tickets are $12 each, and there is a onetime service
fee of $5. Can the slope of this line be thought of as
a rate? Can someone "Explain" this problem to me thks!

the cost changes by $12 per ticket, so that is the rate of changes of cost due to changes in ticket number.
