Part c: how much money is saved by using the services of company b instead of company a to rent a truck for 7 hours?

Company a: 70 plus 4 times (how many hours) 
company b: 60$ plus 5 times (how many hours)
PART A 70+four(x)  B 60+5x  
THE VARIABLE REPRESENTS THE HOURS THE TRUCK WAS RENTED
PART B company a charges 9four dollars to rent the truck
              company b charges 90 dollars to rent the truck
PART C: you would have to solve the equation like this to find PART C
A: 70+four(7)=98 B: 60+5(7)=95
so the answer for part c would be he saved 3 dollars
