5 Linear Functions Create a linear cost function for each of the 4 rental options. Create a linear cost function for each of the 4 rental options. Create a table that represents the cost options for every 250 miles up to 3000 total miles Create a table that represents the cost options for every 250 miles up to 3000 total miles Represent your equations graphically using your graphing calculator or… Represent your equations graphically using your graphing calculator or… Free Online Graphing CalculatorFree Online Graphing CalculatorFree Online Graphing CalculatorFree Online Graphing Calculator Use your graphing calculator to create an approximate representation of your graph on the poster board provided (be sure to label accordingly) Use your graphing calculator to create an approximate representation of your graph on the poster board provided (be sure to label accordingly)

6 Analyze Your Data Intervals: Which rental agency has the best initial deal and for how many miles will this be the best deal? Intervals: Which rental agency has the best initial deal and for how many miles will this be the best deal? Intervals: At what mileage marker does another rental option become the best option, for how long is this the best option? Intervals: At what mileage marker does another rental option become the best option, for how long is this the best option? Will there be a distance where a rental agency will be the best option for an infinite amount of miles? Which option is this and what is the mileage interval? Will there be a distance where a rental agency will be the best option for an infinite amount of miles? Which option is this and what is the mileage interval?
