The math club is order tee shirts for each member. The tee shirts cost $12.50 each plus a one - time set - up fee of $25 for design on

the front and back. Write an equation that gives the total cost in terms of the number of t- shirts. Use x to represent the number of t- shirts and use y to represent the total cost. Then use the equation to find the total cost to make 126 tee shirts.

the front and back. Write an equation that gives the total cost in terms of the number of t- shirts. Use x to represent the number of t- shirts and use y to represent the total cost. Then use the equation to find the total cost to make 126 tee shirts.

So ($25)

find out how much 126 t-shirts will cost including the $25 set up fee.

so in calculator its (12.50 × 126) + 25. This gives you 1600.

Now you know the answer, you work your way backwards.

y = x + $25

Ok so since you have an initial 25 dollar fee, and 12.50 per shirt, your equation would be as follows:

y=12.50x + 25

x is representing the number of members.

y is representing the total cost.

So for 126 shirts, just substitute for x.

Your answer would be $1,600
