Another typical inconsistency with my “friend” Connect.
Costs for making CDs are 4.60x + 50.00 or something like that.
CDs sell for ten bucks.
A: make an equation for the cost. (They obviously didn’t give an equation but described it in words.) No problem for student.
B: Make an equation to describe how much they made for each CD.
Correct answer y = 10x
C. How much would they make if they sold 10,000 CDs?
I’m sorry, guys, the answer should have been 100,000. Fortunately we’re allowed to make guesses … so when that was wrong, we figured out what the profit would be. Yes, that’s right, there’s a word for it and you should use it.
