The answer is c(x) = 36x + 200 Can you please explain how they got to that answer. Thank you.Answer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y=mx+b [start with the basic equation of a line] (x, y) = (50, 2000) [identify the given variables] b= fixed cost = 200 [identify the given variables] . y=mx+b 2000=m(50)+200 [plug-in the given variables] 2000-200=m(50) [solve for the unknown variable] 1800/50=m 36=m . y=mx+b y=36x+200 [plug-in the necessary variables]
