Extra milk required = x litre
total expenditure = y

cost of extra milk = Rs. 25/litre
extra expense = 25×x = Rs. 25x
fixed expense = Rs. 700

Total expense = fixed expense + extra expense
⇒ y = 700+25x

Fixed cost on milk= Rs 700
Extra milk required= x ltr
Cost of extra milk= 25*x Rs
Total expense toward milk= y Rs
We have y= 700 + 25x
