Printing Books Project Follow Up Questions

ID: B

1. a. Which of the three options shown in the Printing Books dilemma displays a proportional relationship between Number of Books and Cost? Explain how you determined your answer.

b, What is the unit rate in this option? Explain in the context of the situation.

c. Write an equation to represent each of the options. (Remember to identify slope & y-intercept.) Printing Company ________________________ Copy Center ________________________ School District ________________________ 2. a. At what point do the Copy Center and School District lines intersect? Describe the cost of each at this point.

b. At what point do the Printing Company and Copy Center lines intersect? Describe the cost of each at this point.

Name: __________________________ 3. Suppose that these additional conditions apply:    Western High School will need 400 textbooks next year. Eastern High School will need 550 textbooks next year. Northern High School will need 1400 textbooks next year.

Choose one of the high schools listed above. Write a paragraph of at least 5 sentences to the school board explaining which copying option you would choose. Use your spreadsheet and the graph to determine which copying option would cost the school the least amount of money.
