The neighborhood skateboard club is starting a fundraiser in order to buy more skateboards. They have decided to sell logo mugs. The Mugs on Mugs Company offers to supply mugs to the club for $3.75 each plus a $55 process and handling fee. The Punny-Cups Company offers to supply mugs to the club for $5.05 each plus a $10 process and handling fee. How many mugs would they have to buy to make the cost the same from both companies? Round your answer up to the nearest one mug. Define two variables, write a system of equations, and solve the system by graphing on your own paper to find the number of mugs. Include the intersection point in your explanation.
Can someone tell me how to set this up please! :)
Well, for many cups, puncost has to be greater. Where is it the same.
Graph the two costs, vs n.
Where the lines cross, is the same.
