    The package weighs 30 ounces.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Mailbox Plus charges;

    Charges per ounce = $0.25

    Let,

    x be the number of ounces.

    M(x)=5+0.25x

    United packges charges;

    Charges per ounce = $0.35

    U(x) = 2+0.35x

    Cost will be same when the functions are equal;

    M(x) = U(x)

    5+0.25x=2+0.35x\\5-2=0.35x-0.25x\\3=0.10x\\0.10x=3\\

    Dividing both sides by 0.10

    \frac{0.10x}{0.10}=\frac{3}{0.10}\\x=30

    The package weighs 30 ounces.
