I’m here. finally. in Frankfurt. But it was like doing a story problem in algebra.
Calculate solving for x. UAB=air shipping, HHE=slow container shipping
UAB=175 lbs HHE≠500 lbs
(x2)-weight of boxes=UAB
HHE=x2*y+weight of boxes+weight of containers+monty python movie poster (framed)=UAB+HHE
Therefore x= _____________lbs
Now answer the following story questions:
If Mary didn’t get everything shipped UAB and/or HHE, what will it cost to ship the rest of her sh!t to Germany? Use the following information to help you solve for x.
4 large-sized priority shipping boxes
2 medium-sized priority shipping boxes
1 small-sized shipping box = x
Solve for x. You may use the USPS website for additional information.
