y = 4.25x

Step-by-step explanation:

Cheddar cheese cost 4.25 per pound . This means the cost of cheddar cheese is 4.25 for every pound in weight. Assuming we put a currency to the value we can say 1 pound of cheddar cheese is equals to 4.25 dollars(\$4.25). Mathematically, it can be represented as

4.25 is the cost for 1 pound of Cheddar cheese

Let the cost of the equation be y as required from the question.

y = cost of the cheddar cheese

x is the weight value in pounds of the Cheddar cheese.

The equation can be best represented as

y = 4.25x

In the equation above if the amount in pounds is 3 pound . the value will be inputted for x and the cost will be gotten which is y.

hope this helps!:)
