For example, the total cost of an electrician who charges 35 dollars for a house call and 50 dollars per hour would be expressed as the function y = 50x + 35. If the rate were raised to 65 dollars per hour, describe how the function would change.

i) Tasks have a real-world context. ii) Exponential functions are limited to those with domains in the integers.
