**Math 34A**Chapter 6 examples Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB**Example: In a meal plan at a college you pay a monthly**membership fee, and then you receive all meals at a predetermined fixed price per meal. a) If 30 meals cost $152.50 and 60 meals cost $250, find the membership fee and the fixed price for a meal. b) Write a formula for the cost of a meal plan, C, in terms of the number of meals, m. c) Find the cost for 50 meals. d) Now find m in terms of C. e) Use part d) to determine the maximum number of meals you can buy on a budget of $300.**Linear Functions can always be written as**y = mx + b; m=slope; b=y-intercept**Linear Functions can always be written as**y = mx + b; m=slope; b=y-intercept**“Proportional to” means “Equals a constant times”**“Inversely Proportional to” means “Equals a constant divided by”
