Notice that the prices are always fractions and that the numerators and denominators are always odd numbers.
(2n -1) is always an odd number.
So is (2n +1).
So, P(x) = (2x -1) / (2x +1) ---------answer.
The following table gives the price per unit for different volume purchases.
# Bought: [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ]
Price Per Unit: [3/5] [5/7] [7/9] [9/11] [11/13]
Write a function statement for the price (P) per unit if x number items are bought.
P(x) = ??
