Two shipping companies charge different amounts to mail packages. Company A

charges an initial $5 fee, and each pound shipped is an additional $1. Company B

charges an initial $3 fee, and $1.50 for each pound shipped.

27. At what weight will the two companies have the same charge?

28. Which company charges less for a 6-lb package? How much will you save?
