Q:
# PLEASE HELP WILL MARK BRAINLIEST (if possible).......................Braden bought 18 pencils for $4.50. Let x represent the number of pencils purchased, and let y represent the total cost. Graph the line that represents the proportional relationship.

Accepted Solution

A:

We are given x represent the number of pencils purchased, and let y represent the total cost.We also given 18 pencils for $4.50.Therefore, cost of each pencil = 4.50/18 = $0.25Total cost (y) = cost of each pencil Γ number of pencils.Therefore, equation would be y = 0.25x.In order to graph it, let us find some points for graph using table.Plugging x=4, we get y = 0.25(4) = 1.Plugging x=8, we get y = 0.25(8) = 2.We got two coordinates, (4,1) and (8,2).Plotting those points on the graph and joining the points.We can see that graph represents the proportional relationship.
