Charlie's Computer Company charges $0.65 per pound to ship computers.
Part A: Write an equation to determine the total cost, c, to ship p pounds of computers. Use your equation to determine the cost of shipping 2 pounds of computers. (6 points)
Part B: If the company reduces the cost to ship computers by 0.05 per pound, write an equation to determine the total cost, c, to ship p pounds of computers with the reduced cost. (4 points)

if one pound costs 0.65 dollars, then p pounds cost:
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
okay.. 0.65p ?
\[c = 0.65 \cdot p\]
so what do we say for part a?
we can say this:
"the requested equation, is: \(c = 0.65 \cdot p\)"
ok and part b?
now, we have to replace p with 2, so we get:
\[c = 0.65 \cdot p = 0.65 \cdot 2 = ...?\]
i dont know that one :(
it is simple:
oh okay.. :)
for part B)
if one pound is shipped for 0.05 dollars, then p pounds are shipped for:
what do we say for part b?
we can write this statement:
"the cost to ship \(p\) pounds, with the reduced unitary cost is \(c=0.05 \cdot p\)"
so whats part A and Part B... please include all of the work :)
summarizing, we can write this:
part A) requested formula is \(c=0.65 \cdot p \)
so, specializing to p=2, we have:
\(c=0.65 \cdot 2=1.30$\)
the new formula, using the reduced unitary cost, is:
\(c=0.05 \cdot p \)
