Monthly service charge: $8.80

Per therm service charge

1st 25 therms : $0.6686/therm

Over 25 therms: $0.85870/therm

(a) What is the charge for using 25 therms in one month?

(b) What is the charge for using 45 therms in one month?

(c) Construct a function that gives the monthly charge C for x therms of gas.

I am totally lost, can someone please show me how to do this???

**Steve**, Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 11:17amis using x therms,

f(x) = 8.80 + .6686x for 0<=x<=25

25 therms cost $16.715, so

f(x) = 8.80+16.715 + .85870x

= 25.515 + .85870x for 25<x

now just plug in values for x, using the appropriate function
