Q:
# Each package of hot dog buns contains 8 buns. Let p be the number of packages of hot dog buns and b be the total number of buns. Determine which variable is independent and which is dependent. Then, write an equation that models the situation, and make a table showing the number of hot dog buns in 3 to 8 packages.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer with explanation:Given : Each package of hot dog buns contains 8 buns. Let p be the number of packages of hot dog buns and b be the total number of buns.∵ number of buns dependent on the number of packages of hot dogs required.Thus , the independent variable is p →the number of packages .and dependent variable is b → the number of buns.The equation that models the situation : [tex]b=8p[/tex]Required table :p b3 8(3)=244 8(4)=325 8(5)=406 8(6)=487 8(7)=568 8(8)=64
