15 A local business was looking to hire a landscaper to work on their property. They narrowed
   their choices to two companies. Flourish Landscaping Company charges a flat rate of $120
   per hour. Green Thumb Landscapers charges $70 per hour plus a $1600 equipment fee.
    Write a system of equations representing how much each company charges.
    Determine and state the number of hours that must be worked for the cost of each company to
    be the same. [The use of the grid below is optional.]
    If it is estimated to take at least 35 hours to complete the job, which company will be less
    expensive? Justify your answer.
