Use the greatest integer function to create a model for the cost C of overnight of a package weighing x pounds, where x > 0. Sketch the graph of the function.
2. Your wage is $8.00 per hour plus $0.75 for each unit produced hour. So, your hourly wage y in terms of the number of units produced x is y = 8 + 0.75x.
Find the inverse function. What does each variable in the inverse function represents?
for the first one, is it
C= 9,whenx<1
=9+[2.5x],whenx>or=1
Second one,
x=(y-8)/.75
