Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:a)The equation is $35l-$215b)Amount = $695c)They will loose $215.Step-by-step explanation:From the question you should understand that;The charge is $35 per lawnThe rental cost for aerating machine is $215The funds raised is the amount gained after aeration work minus the cost of renting the machine.The equation that relates the fund raised and number of lawns aerated during a day is;Let number of lawns aerated that day be lThe cost to aerate one lawn per day is $35Cost to rent the aeration machine is $215a)The equation is ;[tex]=(l*35)-215[/tex]= $35l-$215b)Money raisednumber of lawns,l=26Substitute in the equationAmount=$35l-$215=$(35×26)-$215=$910-$215=$695c)If the team were unable to aerate due to weather condition, they will incur a loss to to renting of the aeration machine.They will lose $215.This can be avoided by not renting the aeration machine when the weather conditions seems unfavorable for working.
