Simone paid \$17 for an initial year's subscription to a magazine. The renewal rate is \$8 per year. This situation can be represented by the equation

y = 8x + 17,

 x (number of years renewed) 0 1 2 3 4 y (total cost in dollars)

where x represents the number of years the subscription is renewed and y represents the total cost, in dollars.

The problem says that   y  =  8x + 17  .

To find  y  when  x = 0  ,  plug in  0  for  x  and solve for  y .

When  x = 0 ,   y  =  8(0) + 17   =   0 + 17   =   17

When  x = 1 ,   y  =  8(1) + 17   =   8 + 17   =   25

When  x = 2 ,   y  =  8(2) + 17   =  16 + 17  =   33

When  x = 3 ,   y  =  8(3) + 17   =  ...can you finish this?

And this is how to fill in the table...

 _x (number of years renewed)__ 0 1 2 3 4 _y (total cost in dollars) _17_ _25_ _33_ ____ ____

Can you finish the last two?
