37. Lydia wants to take art classes. She compares the cost at two art centers. Center A charges \$25 per hour and a registration fee of \$25. Center B charges \$15 per hour and a registration fee of \$75. Lydia plans to take x hours of classes.

Write an equation that models this situation, where A represents the total cost of Center A.

Write an equation that models this situation, where B represents the total cost of Center B

If Lydia wants to take 10 hours of classes, use your equations to determine which center will cost less.

Graph your equations for Center A and Center B on the set of axes below.

For Center A: y = 25x + 25

For Center B: y = 15x + 75

Substitute x = 10 into each equation:

A: y = 25(10) + 25 = 275
B: y = 15(10) + 75 = 225

Center B will cost less to take 10 hours of classes.

The graph is below:
