She charges $50 per hour per student. Tara teaches five groups of students, and her net earnings per month are $3,150.
Part A: If each student learns ballet for the same number of hours, write an equation that can be used to calculate the number of hours each student learns ballet in a month. (5 points)
Part B: How many hours did each student learn ballet each month? Show your work and justify each step of your work.

Part A: Does the table represent y as a function of x? Justify your answer. (5 points)
Part B: The total cost f(x), in dollars, for renting a bike for x hours is shown below:
f(x) = 10 + 20x
What is the value of f(100), and what does f(100) represent?

Part A: What does the x-intercept of the function for car 1 represent?
Part B: What does the y-intercept of the function for car 2 represent?
Part C: What is the domain of the functions for car 1 and car 2?
Part D: What is the average rate of change from x = 30 to x = 40 for the function representing the motion for car 2? What does the value of this average rate of change represent?

Part A: Write an equation in two variables in the standard form that can be used to describe the velocity of the car at different times. Show your work and define the variables used.
Part B: How can you graph the equation obtained in Part A for the first six hours?
