8-21.

The choir is planning a trip to the water park, and the parents are trying to determine how much to charge each child. The cost to use a school bus is $350. Complete the table at right, graph your results, and then answer parts (a) and (b) below. 1. Think back to your work with proportions. Is this a proportional relationship? To complete the table, divide $350$ by the number of students. Graphs of proportional relationships can pass through the point $\left(0, 0\right)$. Does your graph look like it will pass through $\left(0, 0\right)$? 1. Is there an association between the number of students and the cost per student? If so, describe it. Consider the form, direction, and outliers in your description. • For every student added, the trip costs less for everyone. There is a non-linear negative association.
