The following situation can be modeled by linear functions. In the following case, draw a graph of the function and use the graph to answer the given question. Be sure you clearly identify the independent and dependent variables. Then briefly discuss whether a linear model is reasonable for the situation described. The cost of a particular private school includes a one-time initiation fee of $\$ 2000$, plus annual tuition of $\$ 10,000$. How much will it cost to attend this school for $6$ years?

Solution

VerifiedWe can conclude that the annual tuition fee is the slope of the function and the initiation fee is the $y$-intercept of the function. The equation for the given model would be

$c=10,000\cdot t+2,000$

where $c$ is the total cost of attending the school which is a dependent variable and $t$ is the time in years which is an independent variable.
