I think the answer has to be something like slope-intercept form (y=mx+b) or point-slope form (y-y1=m(x-x1)). help, if not the answer, would be greatly appreciated.
if an admin/mod reads this, please enable my drumthrasher account. idk what happened to it.
an equation isn't a graph, I don't quite see there this is comming from...
anyway... yes the equation would be
amount earned = ((appliacnes price)*1.05) + 50) * 15
you can put x and y in there, but I don't see why you want to.
