Susan ordered x pizzas for $11 each. In addition, each pizza topping cost $4 for the first pizza and $3 for each additional pizza. If each pizza had exactly

one topping, which of the following gives the total cost, in terms of x, of the pizzas Susan ordered.

a) 11x + 1

b) 11x + 4

c) 14x + 1

d) 14x + 2

e) 14x + 4

Please assist with above problem.

(i) X pizzas costing $11 each: 11x

(ii) X toppings costing $4 for the first one, and $3 for each subsequent pizzas: $4 + $3(x-1)

Therefore total cost = (i) + (ii) = 11x + 4 + 3(x-1)

Simplifying: 14x + 1. The answer is C.
