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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can say this: "the requested equation, is: \(c = 0.65 \cdot p\)"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, we have to replace p with 2, so we get: \[c = 0.65 \cdot p = 0.65 \cdot 2 = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can write this statement: "the cost to ship \(p\) pounds, with the reduced unitary cost is \(c=0.05 \cdot p\)"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0summarizing, we can write this: part A) requested formula is \(c=0.65 \cdot p \) so, specializing to p=2, we have: \(c=0.65 \cdot 2=1.30$\) part B) the new formula, using the reduced unitary cost, is: \(c=0.05 \cdot p \)
