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?

$5+$1 per pound

Company B

$3 + 1.50 per pound

3+1.50x=5+1x

1.50x=2+x

.50x=2

X=4

28.

6 lb package with company a

$5+($1x6)=$11

6lb package with company b

$3+($1.50x6)=$3+$9=$12

Company A charges less. You save $1
