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?

• math -

Company A
\$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
