Jake is comparing the prices of two mattress cleaning companies. Company A charges $30 per mattress and an additional $13 as service charges. Company B charges $28 per mattress and an additional $15 as service charges. Part A: Write equations to represent Company A's and Company B's total mattress cleaning charges for a certain number of mattresses. Define the variable used in the equations. (4 points) Part B: Which company would charge less for cleaning 4 mattresses? Justify your answer. (3 points) Part C: How much money is saved by using the services of Company B instead of Company A to clean 7 mattresses? (3 points)

"Would it be 13 + 30x & 15 + 28x ? for a" would be correct if you define the variables and the results. For part B, you need to state which company charges less (for cleaning 4 mattresses) and why (for example, by calculating the total cost of each and compare). You will need these values for part C anyway.
