Can someone tell me how to set this up?

**MathMate**, Friday, October 16, 2009 at 12:18pm"The Mugs on Mugs Company offers to supply mugs to the club for $3.75 each plus a $55 process and handling fee. "

Mugs(n) = 55 + 3.75n

"The Punny-Cups Company offers to supply mugs to the club for $5.05 each plus a $10 process and handling fee. "

Punny(n) = ??

Can you take it from here?

**MathMate**, Friday, October 16, 2009 at 1:03pmThese are separate functions (straight lines) that you would graph. For a particular of n, you would have a value (cost) for each function, which allows you to compare prices according to the quantities of mugs to be ordered.

The crossing of the two lines is the point where the companies charge the same price.
