Kim purchases n items at $8 each, postage and handling =$3first item, and $1 for each additional item. Total dollar amount for Kim's purchase = total price total postage and handling. Total price =$8n
For postage and handling = 3 + (n-1)
= 3 + n - 1
= $(n+2) Total dollar amount =$8n + $(n+2) = 8n + n + 2 =$(9n+2)

Answer = C
