Lin-Yee is helping to set up a health clinic in Inuvik by collecting and shipping medical supplies from Calgary. She has found these shipping rates online:

• regular rate: $2.10/lb

• ship 101 to 500 lb, get a 20% discount

• ship over 500 lb, get a 40% discount

a) How much will it cost total if she ships a quarter of the equipment (three beds and one stretcher) each month?

b) How much will it cost total if she ships half the equipment every two months?
