Please Help Me. Austin is comparing the prices of two car rental companies. Company A charges $24 per day and an additional $25 as service charges. Company B charges $22 per day and an additional $40 as service charges. Part A: Write an equation to represent each company's total charges for renting a car for a certain number of days. For both equations (one for Company A and one for Company B), define the variable used. Part B: Which company would charge less for renting a car for 4 days? Justify your answer. Part C: How much money is saved by using the services of Company A instead of Company B to rent a car for 6 days?

Part A: company a: y = 24d + 25 company b: y = 22d + 40 (vairable d = time in days) (y = cost) Part B: Company a: y = 24 x (4) +25 y = 96 + 25  y = 121 Company b: y = 22 x (4) + 40 y = 88 + 40 y = 128 So Company A is the correct answer because it costs $121 Part C: Company a: y = 24 x (6) + 25  y = 144 + 25  y = 169 Company b: y = 22 (6) + 40 y = 132 + 40 y = 172 172-169= $3 is saved
