    We are given table for the prices for two different catering companies.

    Company Initial Payment           Rate Per Employee

    ________________________________________

    $135                                         $12

            $0                                           $15

    We know, slope-intercept form of a linear equation:

    y= mx+ b.

    Where m is the slope ( Rate Per Employee with respect to the problem) and b is the y-intercept (Company Initial Payment).

    Plugging m= 12 and b= 135 in slope-intercept form y=mx+b to get first equation.

    y = 12x +135.

    Plugging m= 15 and b= 0 in slope-intercept form y=mx+b to get second equation.

    y = 15x + 0 or y = 15x.

    Therefore, system of equations or Devoted Catering are

    y = 12x +135.

    y = 15x .
