Need help on an algebra problem?

This summer, my family bought a pontoon boat. Since I knew hardly anything about boats, I called Nelson’s Speed Shop about winterizing (making it so it won’t crack or the engine freeze up over the cold months) and storing it for me over the winter. He said the cost is slightly different depending on how long the boat is: take the length of the boat in feet, then add two for the motor. They charge $9 per foot to shrink-wrap it for storage, and then add on $250 to drain the oil, add stuff to the gas tank, and store it at their place.

Completely analyze the relationship between the boat length and the total cost by making a table for ten possible realistic values

    Nelson should figure this out, just tell them the length.
