Hockey Gear The South Coast College hockey team wants to purchase wool hats for its road trip to Alaska. The cost per hat depends on the number of hats the team orders as shown in the following table:
Hats Ordered x  5  25  40  100  125 
Cost/Hat

25.50  23.50  24.63  30.25  32.70 
a. Which of the following functions best models the data?
(A)
(B)
(C)
(D)
b. Graph the model you chose in part (a) with
(a)
The correct function that best fits the data provided in the table that shows the cost per hat that depends on the number of hats orders by the hockey team of the South Coast College who is planning to buy wool hats for its road trip to Alaska.
Hats Ordered x  
Cost/Hat 
The options are:
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.
Hats Ordered x  
Cost/Hat 
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
Hats Ordered x  
Cost/Hat
