Question

Isa owns a parking garage in downtown Colombia. He charges $5.00 per hour. The company has total costs of $550 when 50 parking stalls/spots are occupied and $650 when 100 parking stalls/spots are occupied within the hour. Find the profit function of the company operating this parking package. Note: Assume the functions are linear.

Answer #1

We have the following information

Per hour parking charge = $5

The company has total costs of $550 when 50 parking stalls/spots are occupied

The company has total costs of $650 when 100 parking stalls/spots are occupied within the hour

So, total cost (TC) function will be of the following form

TC = 300/X + 5P X = 1 for P = 50, and X = 2 for P = 100

P = Parking stalls/spots

When P = 50

TC = 300/1 + (5 × 50)

TC = 300 + 250

**TC = $550**

When P = 100

TC = 300/2 + (5 × 100)

TC = 150 + 500

**TC = $650**

Marc owns a landscaping business. For each lawn, he charges $75
plus $30 per hour of work. A linear equation that expresses the
total amount of money Marc earns per lawn is y=75+30x. What are the
independent and dependent variables? What is the y-intercept and
the slope?
Select the correct answer below:
A. The independent variable (x) is the amount of time Marc works
a property. The dependent variable (y) is the amount, in dollars,
Marc earns for a lawn....
