The price is the same at both stores for 2 prints.

Step-by-step explanation:

Equations

Let’s set the variable

x = number of photo prints

Company Photo Plus charges $2 for each print and$6 for a processing fee, thus the total charges are:

PP = 6 + 2x

Company Picture Time charges $3 for each print and$4 for a processing fee, thus it charges a total of:

PT = 4 + 3x

It’s required to find the number of prints that make both stores charge the same. Equating both functions:

6 + 2x = 4 + 3x

Subtracting 2x and 4:

x = 2

The price is the same at both stores for 2 prints.
