A printing press is considering buying a printing machine. They have two quotations from two different companies.


Company A: The basic cost is $9,500, and a repair contract of $75 per month covers unlimited repairs.
Company B: The basic cost is $13,500, and the company offers a repair contract that charges $150 per repair.

The probability of the number of repairs to the printing machine offered by Company B is given in the table.

Yeah I'm just stuck because I'm not very good at math and I'm stuck on which statement to pick. It gives me these five statements:

-The offer from both companies are equivalent. 

-The offer from Company A, with the repair contract, is more cost-effective than the offer from Company B.

-The offer from Company B, with the repair contract, is more cost-effective than the offer from Company A.

-The offer from Company B, without the repair contract, is more cost-effective than the offer from Company A.

-The given data is insufficient to make any decision.
