Description:

<p>Domino’s pizza is delicious. The company’s success is proof that people enjoy their pies. The company is also tech savvy: you can order online, and they even have a pizza tracker so you can keep tabs on your delivery!</p><p>The website is great. But one thing it’s not is transparent. Domino's does not tell you how much the component pieces cost; they only tell you an item's final price after you build it. In this lesson, students use linear equations to find the base price (y-intercept) and cost per additional topping (slope). Let's find out how much Domino's is really charging for pizza</p>
