Q: A tile factory earns money by a flat fee for delivery and a sales price per tile sold. For one customer, the tile factory shipped 10,000 units to a retail store at a rate of $0.25 per tile. The total

the tile factory earned from that sale was $3,000. Which of the following equations describes the revenue of the tile factory for this sale in terms of tiles sold?
A. y = 0.25x 10,000
B. y = 0.25x 3,000
C. y = 0.25x 500
D. y = 0.25x 0.25

A: At 25 cents per tile, the sales price of 10,000 units is
10,000 * $0.25 = $2500
Since the factory got $3000, the flat fee for delivery must be
$3000 - $2500 = $500
Thus, [ the equation for total money earned from a sale should reflect
- the price of $0.25 per tile, plus
- the delivery fee of $500.
and we can see that the answer is
C. y = 0.25x + 500 ]
