Math Question

A store offers packing and mailing services to customers. The cost of shipping a box is a combination of a flat packing fee of \( \$ 5 \) and an amount based on the weight in pounds of the box, \( \$ 2.25 \) per pound. Which equation represents the shipping cost as a function of \( x \), the weight in pounds?
\( f(x)=2.25 x+5 \)
\( f(x)=5 x+2.25 \)
\( f(x)=2.25 x-5 \)
\( f(x)=5 x-2.25 \)
