It costs $${$4}$$ to enter a carnival and an additional $${$2}$$ for each activity you do once inside the carnival. The equation below represents the total cost spent at the carnival, $$y$$, as a function of the number of activities done, $$x$$.
$$y=2x+4$$
The equation below represents the area of a square, $$a$$, as a function of its side length, $$s$$.
$$a=s^2$$
