A mail-order company charges $12 for each shirt. Shipping costs $f per oder.

Write a variable expression for the cost of odering x number of shirts

  • Math -

    Suppose you buy x shirts to be shipped as one order. What is the cost of the shirts? What is the cost of shipping?

  • Math -

    I think you need to know how many shirts were ordered per order. If ten shirts were ordered on ONE order, the cost is 10x+4
    If ten shirts were ordered on ten orders, then cost is
    10x+40

    So I am not certain there is a definite answer here.
