 Question 565989: Polynomial Assistance My problem states: The cost of doing business for a company can be found by adding fixed costs, such as rent, insurance, and wages, variable costs, which are the costs to purchase the product you are selling. The portion of the company's fixed costs allotted to this product is \$300, and the supplier's cost for a set of tile is \$6 each. Let x represent the number of tile sets If b represents a fixed cost, what value would represent b? (I think it is the \$300 and the \$6 ?) Find the cost equation for the tile. ( I know my answer needs to be in the form of C=mx+b, but I do not know how to structure my problem to show my work) Thank you for your help.

The portion of the company's fixed costs allotted to this product is \$300, and the supplier's cost for a set of tile is \$6 each. Let x represent the number of tile sets : If b represents a fixed cost, what value would represent b? (I think it is the \$300 and the \$6 ?) No, fixed cost is only the \$300, \$6 is a cost per tile set. : Find the cost equation for the tile. C = 6x + 300 ( I know my answer needs to be in the form of C=mx+b, but I do not know how to structure my problem to show my work)
