Speedy Parcel Service operates a fleet of delivery trucks in a large metropolitan area. A careful study by the company?s cost analyst has determined that if a truck is driven 120,000 miles during a year, the average operating cost is 11.6 cents per mile.

2. Express the variable and fixed costs in the form Y = a + bX.
