$y = 8 x$

#### Explanation:

You want to start by finding $x$. $x$ in this equation is the amount of money that it will cost to rent a tent for one day. You are told that it costs $56 to rent a tent for $7$days. If you divide both numbers by $7$, you will see that it costs $8 to rent a tent for $1$ day. You multiply the cost by the number of days you rent it. So $2$ days would be $16, $3$days would be $24# ... etc.

Therefore, the equation is

$y \left(\text{cost")= 8("dollars") times x("days}\right)$.

$y = 8 x$
