Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"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.
