How do I model "A market sells chicken for $2.99 a pound" with a linear function and graph?

  • Algebra 1 -

    Let x = weight of chicken in pounds
    Let y = total cost of x pounds of chicken

    Therefore,
    y = 2.99x

    To see the graph of this, go to wolframalpha . com and type in the equation.

    Hope this helps :3wol
