Use the scenario to answer the question. an egg farmer determined that it costs him $0.05 per egg to harvest chicken eggs. in addition, he spends $1000 each month for the upkeep of his farm. write an equation in slope-intercept form that represents the monthly cost of the farm in dollars y, when it produces x eggs. which answer correctly identifies the slope and equation for this situation?
Total cost here is a sum that increases with the number of eggs produced.
TC(x) = $1000 + ($0.05/egg)x, where x is the number of eggs produced.
The y-intercept is $1000; it is independent of the number of eggs produced.
The slope is $0.05/egg.
Answer C is correct.
