Soccer Gear The East Coast College soccer team is planning to buy new gear for its road trip to California. The cost per shirt depends on the number of shirts the team orders as shown in the following table:
Shirts Ordered x  5  25  40  100  125 
Cost/Shirt

22.91  21.81  21.25  21.25  22.31

Given Information:
The table shows the cost per shirt that depends on the number of shirts orders by the soccer team of the East Coast College who is planning to buy new gear for its road trip to California.
Shirts Ordered x  
Cost/Shirt 
The options are:
Consider the function,
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Now, consider the function,
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Now, consider the function,
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
Evaluate the cost when number of shirts
(b)
To graph: The model obtained in part (a), for
Shirts Ordered x  
Cost/Shirt
