Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Emily uses her college photocopier machine to photocopy at the rate of $0.08 per page. She decides to rent a photocopier machine for $90 a year. The cost of photocopying using the rented machine is $0.03 per page. Part A: Write an inequality that can be used to calculate the number of pages that Emily should photocopy in a year so that the amount she pays for the rented machine is less than the college machine. Define the variable used. (5 points) Part B: How many pages should Emily print in a year to justify renting the photocopier? Show your work. (5 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we should let ''per Page" represent x

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the cost of photocopying using the rented machine is represented by .03x

Hero
