So do you know what the constant could be for the equations?
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
would it be 20 and 8
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
No, those numbers are for PER LOAD The other two numbers are a one time fee for any amount of load Do you understand? :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
oh ok
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
i'm still confused though
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
So, for part a we can make two equations Company A's equation is y = 20x + 8 Company B's equation is y = 24x + 4 Do you agree? :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
yes
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
Now for part b, do you know what to do?
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
i do the equation now right
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
you plug in 5 into both equations and see which company has a smaller amount for y :)
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
do it yourself, but post your work so I can make sure I'll wait for you reply :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
ok i will
TheSmartOne

safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
im stuck on how place the 5 in the equation
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
y=20x+8 5 -5 am i doing it wrong?
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
yea
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
you replace x with 5
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
so y = 20(5) + 8 y = 100 + 8 y = ?
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
ok i'm sorry but i'm really dumb and i have know idea what to do but is y-=108
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
y=108
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
yes
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
now do it for the other equation :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
ok
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
is it 95
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
how did you get that?
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
by doing this y=20(5)+8 5 -100 95

i don't know what to do, i'm very confused
safyousuff97

i don't know the steps for this problem
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
try this y = 24(5) + 4 solve for y :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
is it 124

hold on I will help you with all parts k?
safyousuff97

TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
and that's correct @safyousuff97
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
ok thats for part a right
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
so which company is cheaper for 5 loads? Company A charges 108 for 5 loads Company B charges 124 for 5 loads
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
this is for part b, we completed part a already :)
safyousuff97
  • safyousuff97
company a
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
correct that's your answer for part b :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Company A $20 per load $8 service Company B $24 per load $4 service PART A: Let l be the number of loads Company A = 20l + 8 Company B = 24l + 4 PART B: Company A = 20*5 + 8 = $108 Company B = 24*5 + 4 = $124 Company A charges less PART C: Company A = 20*9 + 8 = $188 Company B = 24*9 + 4 = $220 220 - 188 = 32 You save $32.
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
and now do what we did for part b for part c but instead of using 5, use 9
