Question

a vacationer has $300 to spend over the next 20 days the first two days she spends$20 on food each day she vists with a family member for the next four days and does days until she spends all of her money. what is the independent and dependent variable

1. Calantha
The independent and dependent variables will be x and C, respectively.

What is a linear equation?

A relationship between two or more parameters that, when shown on a graph, produces a linear model. The degree of the variable will be one.
The linear equation is given as,
y = mx + c
Where m is the slope of the line and c is the yintercept of the line.
A vacationer has $300 to spend over the next 20 days. For the first two days, she spends$20 on food each day.
She visits with a family member for the next four days
Then the total number of days remaining will be
⇒ 20 – 2 – 4
⇒ 20 – 6
⇒ 14 days
Let x be the amount spent each day and C be the remaining amount.
C = 14x + 300 – 40
C = 14x + 260
Then the independent and dependent variables will be x and C, respectively.
