Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Company A: 20x + 8 Company B: 24x + 4 where x = # of loads Part A: see above Part B: For 5 loads, Company A would be20(5) + 8 = $108 Company B would be 24(5) + 4 = $124 Company A would charge less. PART C: For 9 loads, Company A: 20(9) + 8 = $188 Company B: 24(9) + 4 = $220 You would save $32 by using Company A.
