household repairs. The plumber worked at Camila’s house for 3 hours and
charged her $191. The plumber worked at Conner’s house for 1 hour and
charged him $107.

    Answer: Part a: b represents the base fee charged for the “house call” job

    m is the hourly rate.

    x is the number of hours at the job.

    y represents the total cost for the job.

    Part b:. The y-intercept is 65

    The equation follows y=mx+b

    Y= 42x + 65

    Part c:. $275

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The difference between the two total costs, (Camilla 191 – Connor 107)

    = $84. That is the rise. The run is the difference in time, 2 hours. 84/2 = 42.

    m= 42

    42 from 107 to find b, the base fee, 65 This is the y-intercept.

    The equation is y= 42x + 65

    Quick check using Camilla’s bill: 191 = (42)(3) + 65

    191 = 126 + 65 True!

    Part C:

    To find the total cost of the plumber’s 5 hour job,

    Y = 42(5) + 65

    Y= 210 + 65

    Y= $275
