The sales in the 2003-2004 season is $171 million plus 15% of it:
\(\displaystyle{171}+{0.15}{\left({171}\right)}={171}+{25.65}={196.65}\)
So, the sales of snowboarding equipment in the 2003-2004 season is about $196.65 million.

Lumber that is used to frame walls of houses is frequently sold in multiples of 2 ft. If the length of a board is not exactly a multiple of 2​ ft, there is often no charge for the additional length. For​ example, if a board measures at least 8​ ft, but less than 10​ ft, then the consumer is charged for only 8 ft. ​
(a) Suppose that the cost of lumber is ​$0.70 every 2 ft. Find a formula for a function​ f(x)that computes the cost of a board x feet long for \(\displaystyle{10}\leq{x}\leq{16}\).
​(b) Determine the costs of boards with lengths of 8.6 ft and 15.1 ft.
