  1. The equation represents the cost (in dollars) and shipping a package that weighs x pounds is y = 2(x – 1) + 6.

    What is the linear system?

    A Linear system is a system in which the degree of the variable in the equation is one. It may contain one, two, or more than two variables.
    A shipping company charges $6 to ship a package that weighs up to 1 pound and $2 for each additional pound or portion of a pound.
    Let x be the number of pounds and y be the total cost, then we have
    y = 2(x – 1) + 6
    This is the required equation that describes the condition.
