In planning for a new item, a manufacturer assumes that the number of items produced x and the cost in dollars C of producing these items are related by a linear equation. Projections are that 100 itmes will cost $10,000 to produce and that 300 items will cost $22,000 to produce. Find the equation that relates C and x.

10000=K + m 100
22000=K+ m 300

solve for K and M. I would start by subtracting the first equation from the second solving for m.

10000=K + m 100
22000=K+ m 300

solve for K and M. I would start by subtracting the first equation from the second solving for m.
