    Answer:

    OS=\frac{x-20,700}{5}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Functions to model reality  

    There are situations in real life where some variables depend on other(s) and that dependency can be determined as a practical rule or from a well-known theory. The expression who relates those variables are commonly called functions and they become a very useful tool to analyze, explain and predict the behavior of such events.

    We know the monthly budget of a company is x dollars. $20,700 out of it is spent on salaries. After deducting salaries, the remaining budget is

    x-20,700

    One-fifth of it is spent on office supplies, so the required function is

    OS=\frac{1}{5}(x-20,700)

    OS=\frac{x-20,700}{5}

    Answer: Amount spent on office supplies can be calculated as this:  $(1/5 × (x — 20,700).

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1:

    Let Monthly Budget of the Company, M = $x

    Amount spent on salaries, S = $20,700

    Step 2:

    To get  balance of the budget, R. Subtract S from M

    Therefore,

    Remaining balance of the budget, R = $(x — 20,700)

    Step 3:

    Amount spent on office supplies O is given as 1/5 of  balance of the budget. I.e, O = 1/5 × R

                                             

    Therefore, O = $(1/5 × (x — 20,700).
