Ok, so here are the questions.

Mrs. Solar is remodeling a house and is looking for a contractor to do the work. She is getting quotes from three different contractors and will hire one of them based on the total cost. Each company uses a formula to calculate its fees based on the number of hours the work will take.

Mrs. Solar modeled Contractor 1's fee formula with the equation.  y=50x+200

(a) Graph equation y=50x+200 . Give each axis a label and give the graph a title.

(b) Describe what equation y=50x+200 means in the real-world context.

(c) Give three ordered pairs that make the equation true and explain what each ordered pair means in the real-world context.

A) The graph is this ----> https://snag.gy/1Bj0Dm.jpg

b. This means that there is a \$200 for doing the job plus \$50 more for every hour worked.

C. (1,250) means the cost is \$250 and the job took one hour
(2,300) means the cost is \$300 the job took two hours
(3.350) means the cost is \$350 the job took three hours
