Sal's Sandwich Shop sells wraps and sandwiches as part of its lunch specials. The profit on every sandwich is $2 and the profit on every wrap is $3. Sal made a profit of $1,470 from lunch specials last month. The equation 2x + 3y = 1,470 represents Sal's profits last month, where x is the number of sandwich lunch specials sold and y is the number of wrap lunch specials sold.

5. Suppose Sal's total profit on lunch specials for the next month is $1,593. The profit amounts are the same: $2 for each sandwich and $3 for each wrap. In a paragraph of at least three complete sentences, explain how the graphs of the functions for the two months are similar and how they are different.

6. Below is a graph that represents the total profits for a third month. Write the equation of the line that represents this graph. Show your work or explain how you determined the equations.


Please help.

    Also check this please.

    s this already right?

    1. 2x + 3y = 1,470
    –2x –2x
    3y = –2x + 1,470
    3y/ 3 = –2x/3 + 1,470/3
    y = –2x/3 + 490
    The y-intercept of this equation is 490 and the slope is -2x/3.

    2. I would graph this line by finding the y-intercept 490 first.
    Then, you would move down twice from 490 to 488.
    Finally, you would move to the right 3 times.

    3. F(x) = –2x/3 + 490
    The graph would represent the profit of Sal’s Sandwich Shop on every sandwich and wrap from the lunch specials last month.
