(I got part a and b but not part c. Can you please explain to me how to get answer in c and also if my other answers are correct).

3. You recently started the paperwork to purchase your new home, and you were just notified that you can move into the house in 2 weeks. You decide to hire a moving company, but are unsure which company to choose. You search online and are interested in contacting two companies, Heavy Lifters and Quick Move, to discuss their rates. Heavy Lifting charges an $80 fee plus $35 per hour. Quick Move charges $55 per hour with no additional fees.

a) Which mover provides a better deal for 2 hours of work? How did you arrive at your answer?
Quick Move has the better deal. I arrived at this by doing $55(2)+0=$110 for Quick Move and $35(2)+$80=$150 for Heavy Lifters. So you can see that Quick Move is a better deal
b) Which mover provides a better deal for 15 hours of work? How did you arrive at your answer?
Heavy Lifters is a better deal. I arrived at this by doing $35(15)+$80=$605 for Heavy Lifters and $55(15)+0=$825 for Quick Move. So Heavy Lifters is the better deal.
c) For what values h (hours) does Quick Move offer the better deal? Express your answer as an inequality. Explain how you reached your answer.

    Still need help? You are unlikely to get prompt responses in the middle of the night. Sorry.

    For (c), set the two costs equal to each other and solve for the number of hours, h. For h less than that amount, Quick Move will cost less.

    It could also be set up an as inequality (with QuickMove's cost being less) and solved.
