Hi. I have a word problem that asks to write and graph the equation. A refrigerator purchased at $900 costs 12cents p hr to run for 5yrs and to label the axes. My solution was 900=12x+5y I’m not sure where to go after that

## Answer provided by our tutors

Write and graph the equation of the spend 'y' and a function of the time 'x' expressed in hours?

In that case, the equation is:

y = 900 + 0.12*x
