HELP Linda is putting money into a checking account. Let y represent the total amount of money in the account (in dollars). Let x represent the number of weeks Linda has been adding money. Suppose that x and y are related by the equation =+65030xy .

So, Linda already had $650 dollars in her account, but the question isnt asking you how much she already had. Its asking how much she's getting per week

It just says what already in the bank. Lets say every week I give you $5. How can you tell how much money i've given you after four weeks?

multiplication

right 4 times 5. If you wanted to tell how much I'd given you in nine weekd you'd do 9 times 5. If you wanted to find out how much I'd given you in 100 weeks you'd multiply 100 times 5 So you can see the 5 is always staying the same because I'm never giving you more, or less than $5. But the week does change...

so to represent that we just make a rule: I can see how much money i've made by multiplying 5 by however many weeks I've been working. Or How Much I've Made = $5 x Number of weeks. It's kind of annoying to write this out every time so we make a code system: y=how much money you've made. x=number of weeks you have worked So we can say: y= $5x

Last thing, lets say you already had $50 and you wanted to see how much money you had on top of what I was giving to you per week. You would do the same equation: y=5x but you would need to add $50 to it to get the total amount you have now. y=5x+50 See the pattern?

so the change per week is 30 and the starting amount is 650?
