Explain how you could use the information to predict the number of sales for the eighth week

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:A. f(x)=155-6xB. Plug in x=8 and solve.Step-by-step explanation:-we can develop an equation for this by first realizing that each week, the sales decrease by 6. thus, we know the amount of sales decreases by 6 every week so we know the formula is: the initial sales amount-6x (x being whatever week). -we can find the initial amount by noting i=initial sales amount and using the Info from the first week.149=i-6(1)155=Ithus, the formula: f(x)=155-6x- we can plug in 8=x to predict the sales amount on the eighth week:155-6(8)155-48sales on eighth week=107
