Problem of the Week


Problem B
Going to the Dogs
The points marked on the graph below show how much it will cost the Wilson
family to board their family dog Fifi at Dennis Doggie Hotel while they go on
holidays. The fees are given for 1, 2, 3, and 4 days; for example, it will cost $75
to board Fifi for 2 days.

a) What would it cost the Wilsons to board their dog at the Doggie Hotel for a
week?
b) In March, the family is planning to go south for two weeks. The Dog
Emporium offers a 2-week rate of $500 during the month of March. Is this a
better deal than Dennis Doggie Hotel? Explain your reasoning.
