I have a problem with break even analysis? the question is I'm trying to find the cost between 2 businesses to care for my lawn. The one company has an initial fee of $200+$50an hour for labor cost and the second company has an initial cost of $300+$25an hour for labor cost. If h represents the #of labor hours and c represents the total cost it say wright the total cost equation for each. I got $200+$50h=C
$300+$25h=c
then it says to solve the equation for total cost of lawn care by using desired technique:substitution, elimination, or graphing.
Am I on the right track
