Question 8 - 11th Grade Mathematics: Number and Operations Practice Test for the SBAC

Read the attached passage and consult the attached graphs.

Juanita has a location where 300 people per day pass by, but wants Aimee to pay $5 per day rent. Assume the same 20% of them will buy, and she is currently selling at a profit of 25 cents per cup. You show Aimee graph 2 to show the potential of the new site, but she thinks the slope of line 2 should be steeper since she is getting more customers. Explain why the slope is correct as shown.

Aimee plans to open a lemonade stand. She wants to determine whether to sell an 8 ounce or 10-ounce cup of lemonade. Each 8-ounce cup costs 2 cents and 10-ounce cups are 3 cents each. The lemons to make a half-gallon of lemonade cost 5 dollars and the sugar for the half-gallon costs 85 cents. She already has all the materials needed to make the stand and she can use the location at no cost. Aimee notices that about 150 people pass by the location of her stand each day and thinks that 20 percent of these people will buy a cup of lemonade. You have made the 2 accompanying graphs to help Aimee make business decisions.
