## KairiBabe 3 years ago Sean, a freelance editor, charges the rates shown in the table below to edit manuscripts. The cost per page increases as the quality of editing improves. Sean also gives a 5% discount if the entire amount is paid up front. Michelle has an 85-page manuscript. The equation below shows the relationship between the total cost of editing 85 pages, T, and the cost per page, c, if she gets the 5% discount. 85c - 0.05(85c) = T Using the equation, what is the best quality of editing that Michelle can get done for a maximum of \$161.50? Extended proofreading Deep editing Express proofreading Basic pr

xc - 0.05(xc) = 161.50 xc - 0.05xc = 161.50 -0.95xc = 161.50 170 = xc 170 - 0.05(170) = 161.50 170 pages
