Patty's Pet Company charges $0.55 per pound to ship pet supplies.
Part A: Write an equation to determine the total cost, c, to ship p pounds of pet supplies. Use your equation to determine the cost of shipping 2 pounds of pet supplies.
Part B: If the company reduces the cost to ship pet supplies by 0.05 per pound, write an equation to determine the total cost, c, to ship p pounds of pet supplies with the reduced cost

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so in general, if we don't know the amount of pounds, we can just say it's p so the general cost is 0.55*p agreed?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that's why the cost equation is c = 0.55*p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"Use your equation to determine the cost of shipping 2 pounds of pet supplies. " now plug in p = 2 into that cost equation
