a. $C=1500+1.50(n)$ for $0\le n\leq500$ b. 1875 dollars c. 333 CDs d. 500 CDs
a. C=cost, n=# of cds (up to 500) $C=1500+1.50(n)$ for $0\le n\le 500$ b. $C=1500+1.50(250)$ $C=1500+375$ $C=1875$ c. C=2000 $2000=1500+1.50(n)$ $2000-1500=1.50(n)$ $500=1.50(n)$ $500\div1.50=n$ $n=333$ d. C=3000 $3000=1500+1.50(n)$ $3000-1500=1.50(n)$ $1500=1.50(n)$ $1500\div1.50=n$ $n=1000$ but because the deal is only for up to 500, they can only get 500 CDs.
