# Stack of Cups

- Make a table that relates
*h*(the height of a stack of cups) to*n*(the number of cups in a stack) for stacks of 1, 2, 5, and 10 cups. - Use your table to make a graph that shows the relationship between the height of the stack of cups and the number of cups.
- If you have at least one cup, the formula for the relationship between the height of the stack,
*h*, and the number of cups,*n*, is:*h*= 0.5*n*+ 5.5 - Describe what each variable and each number in the formula represents.

## Hint:

Look at the image of the stack of cups.

- What does 0.5 represent?

Think about the problem situation.

- What does 5.5 represent?
- What does
*h*represent? - What does
*n*represent?
