(2) y is the total cost, x is the number of months of service, $40 is the installation fee, and $90 is the service charge per month. y = 40 + 90x y = total cost x = number of months of service 40 = one time installation fee 90 = monthly service charge. Let us assume that the number of months of service is 10 months. then, the total cost would be: y = 40 + 90(10) y = 40 + 900 y = 940
