# Billy plans to paint baskets. The paint costs $14.50. The baskets cost$7.25 each. How do you write an equation that gives the total cost as a function of the number of baskets made. Determine the cost of four baskets?

$T C = 21.75 x$
Cost of four baskets=$.87 #### Explanation: The paint cost is=$ 14.50
The basket cost is=$7.25 Total cost $= \left(14.50 + 7.25\right) \cdot x = 21.75 x$TC$= 21.75 x$TC_(x=4)=21.75 xx 4=$87
