c) The shipping and handling fees for a batch of flour purchased from Isadore’s Interstate Mill are less than 10 percent of the cost of an identical batch of flour purchased from Larry’s
Local Mill.

c) The shipping and handling fees for a batch of flour purchased from Isadore’s Interstate Mill
are less than 10 percent of the cost of an identical batch of flour purchased from Larry’s
Local Mill.

shipping etc shud be less than \$10 to stay prfitable at isadore, so (c)wins
