Developing an Equation from Average Costs
The America Dog and Cat Hotel is a pet hotel located in Las Vegas. Assume that in March, when dog-days (occupancy) were at an annual low of 500, the average cost per dog-day was $14. In July, when dog-days were at a capacity level of 4,000, the average cost per dog-day was $7.
(a) Develop an equation for monthly operating costs. (Let X = dog-days per month)
Total cost =?Answer + Answer * X
