(8, 2.40)
Peaches are being sold for \$2 per pound. If x represents the number of pounds of peaches bought and y represents the total cost of the peaches, which best describes the values of x and y?
The values of both x and y will be real numbers greater than or equal to 0.
Which graph represents viable values for y = 5.5x, where x is the number of cans of tomato paste and y is the total weight of the sealed cans in ounces?
Which scenario is most likely the one shown on the graph?
the total number of calories, y, in a salad with vegetables containing 50 calories topped with x ounces of salad dressing at 100 calories per ounce
The yearbook club has 5 members returning from last year. They set up a booth in the cafeteria to recruit more members, and an average of 3 new members sign up each day. Which best describes why the graph relating the total number of members on the yearbook club, m, and the number of days the booth is set up, d, will be continuous or discrete?
The graph will be discrete because there is no such thing as a partial person to sign up and the booth is set up once each day for sign ups.
Jayne stopped to get gas before going on a road trip. The tank already had 4 gallons of gas in it. Which best describes why the graph relating the total amount of gasoline in the tank, y, to the number of gallons that she added to it, x, will be continuous or discrete?
The graph will be continuous because the amount of gas that she added to the tank does not need to be an integer amount.
Which description is represented by a discrete graph?
Kiley bought a platter for \$19 and several matching bowls that were \$8 each. What is the total cost before tax?
Diep bought a baguette loaf of bread 65 centimeters long. For lunch every afternoon, he cuts 15 centimeters of bread for his sandwich. Diep wants to determine the length of the loaf of bread, l, after d days. What is the equation of the scenario? Is the graph of the equation continuous or discrete?
l = 65 - 15d; discrete
Julie needs to cut 4 pieces of yarn, each with the same length, and a piece of yarn 7.75 inches long. Let y represent the length of each of the equal pieces of yarn that Julie decides to cut. What is the equation that can be used to determine the total length of all of the yarn that she ends up cutting, t? Is the graph of the equation continuous or discrete?
t=4y+7.75; continuous
Otto used 6 cups of whole wheat flour and x cups of white flour in the recipe. What is the equation that can be used to find the value of y, the total amount of flour that Otto used in the recipe, and what are the constraints on the values of x and y?
y=x+6; x is any real number greater than or equal to 0, and y is any real number greater than or equal to 6.
Vlad spent 20 minutes on his history homework and then completely solved x math problems that each took 2 minutes to complete. What is the equation that can be used to find the value of y, the total time that Vlad spent on his homework, and what are the constraints on the values of x and y?
y=2x+20; x is any integer greater than or equal to 0, and y is an integer greater than or equal to 20.
