  1. I am not inclined to show work for someone to copy.

    costeach= costperhour*time + fixedcost
    In one, the fixed cost is zero.

    find time when both are equal (set the two cost equations equal to each other).
    then, for times greater than that, Company B is costlier, and for times less than that, Company A is costlier.

  2. Iam wanting help i do not want you to do it for me. I just needed it broken down in order to answer Thank you for your help.
