## elisax33 2 years ago Coach Wilson ordered t-shirts for the basketball team from 2 different t-shirt suppliers. One supplier charged 16 dollars for each t-shirt as well as 5% for shipping. The other supplier charged 18 dollars for each t-shirt plus 7% for shipping. Part A: Coach Wilson ordered the same number of t-shirts from each supplier. Write an expression to find the shipping charges he paid to each supplier. Part B: The first supplier gave Coach Wilson a discount of 10% off of his order total. The second supplier gave him a discount of \$20 off of his order total. Write an equation to find the total
