A. f(x)=155-6x

B. Plug in x=8 and solve.

Step-by-step explanation:

-we can develop an equation for this by first realizing that each week, the sales decrease by 6. thus, we know the amount of sales decreases by 6 every week so we know the formula is: the initial sales amount-6x (x being whatever week).

-we can find the initial amount by noting i=initial sales amount and using the Info from the first week.

149=i-6(1)

155=I

thus, the formula: f(x)=155-6x

– we can plug in 8=x to predict the sales amount on the eighth week:

155-6(8)

155-48

sales on eighth week=107
