  3. 3. Recall the prices for the pizzas from Pizza Grande. Each pizza is $8 and there is $10 delivery charge. Hence if we want x pizzas delivered, then the total cost is given by the expression “8x + 10”. Expressions
  4. 4. Recall the prices for the pizzas from Pizza Grande. Each pizza is $8 and there is $10 delivery charge. Hence if we want x pizzas delivered, then the total cost is given by the expression “8x + 10”. If we order x = 100 pizzas, then the cost is 8(100) + 10 = $810. Expressions
  5. 5. Recall the prices for the pizzas from Pizza Grande. Each pizza is $8 and there is $10 delivery charge. Hence if we want x pizzas delivered, then the total cost is given by the expression “8x + 10”. If we order x = 100 pizzas, then the cost is 8(100) + 10 = $810. Expressions calculate future results.
