I’m trying to study for my course and I need some help to understand this question.
Develop a story problem using the real-world
scenario you have selected from
Here is my story
A parent is looking for the best option for daycare for a
child. A home-based daycare: Sally’s. They charges $3 per hour. A center based:
Head Start charges a set amount a week of $100 at 40 hours and $10 an hour for
any time over the set amount of time. A parent works a total of 48 hours a
week. Is Sally’s a better option or Head Start a better option for the parent?
The parent is single and rasing her child on her own, so budgeting is key in
B. Analyze the cost of each option algebraically by
doing the following:
the reasoning process used to translate the written description of each cost
option into algebraic equations.
3. Solve the system of equations algebraically to
determine where the two cost options are equivalent, showing all work.
Explain each step used to solve the system of equations. Include the following
• All mathematical operations
used to solve the system of equations • The solution(s) of the system of
equations in ordered-pair notation
C. Depict the real-world problem on a single graph,
within a spreadsheet application using integrated graphing tools (e.g.,
Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, LibreOffice Calc).
Include the following details in your graphical
representation of the real-world problem: • Label each axis of the coordinate
plane with descriptive labels.
• Label all graphical solution(s) of the system
of equations as “solution” and includethe ordered pair.
• In a legend, indicate which
cost option corresponds with each line. • Save and submit your spreadsheet as
an *.xls, *.xlsx, or *.ods file.
D. Discuss a decision-making process that is based
on both mathematical reasoning and non-financial, or situational,
considerations. Your discussion should include the following:
• How financial information gleaned from your
algebraic and graphical analyses canbe used to determine the conditions for
choosing cost option A over cost option Band vice versa
• How non-financial, or
situational, considerations can impact the decision-making process
1. Discuss a final recommendation that states the
option that most closely meets the consumer’s financial needs and non-financial
I am having extream difficulty with this, expecially graphing it. Please help
