    Answer:

    The first year, the cost is equal to $1,020

    and each year after that, the cost is augmented by $60.

    Then the equation can be written as:

    Cost(y) = $1,020 + $60*y

    where y is the number of years.

    so when y = 0 we have no increase, when y = 1 the increase only applies one time, when y = 2, the increase applies 2 times and so on.

    other way of writting it is taking the common factor, using that 1020/60 = 17

    Cost(y) = $60*(17 + y)
