(a) Write a linear equation that relates the monthly charge C, in dollars, to the number x of kilowatthours used in a month, 0 ≤ x ≤ 1000. (b) Graph this equation. (c) What is the monthly charge for using 200 kilowatthours? (d) What is the monthly charge for using 500 kilowatthours?(e) Interpret the slope of the line.

Henry,
a. C = 8.48x + 5.69
b. (X,C),(0,5.69),(50,429.69),Add more
points for graphing.
c. C = 8.48*200 + 5.69 = $1701.69
d. Same procedure as c.
e. Slope = 8.48
