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
