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?

    Company A
    $5+$1 per pound

    Company B
    $3 + 1.50 per pound

    27.
    3+1.50x=5+1x
    1.50x=2+x
    .50x=2
    X=4

    6 lb package with company a
    $5+($1x6)=$11

    6lb package with company b
