Task# Chicken and Steak, Variation 2

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task is intended strictly for instructional purposes with the goal of building understandings of linear relationships within a meaningful and, hopefully, somewhat x y familiar context. The expectation for part (a) is that students simply translate the situation to equation form and not necessarily express the relationship as a linear function in slope-intercept form. Parts (b) and (c) align with content standards 8.F.5 and 8.F.4 respectively. Students are asked to analyze a graph of the relationship in part (b) and construct a linear function in part (c).
