Q:
# A carnival has two payment options. Plan A, you pay $10 admission plus $3 for each ride. Plan B, you pay a $20 admission plus $1 for each ride. Write an inequality that would express the situation where plan B is the best buy,

Accepted Solution

A:

Let x = # of rides

Plan A: 10 + 3x

Plan B: 20 + x

if x < 5 rides then plan A is better buy

if x = 5 both plans are the same

if x > 5 then plan B is the best buy

Prove:

x = 6 (rides)

plan A: 10 + 3x = 10 + 3(6) = 10+18 = $28

plan B: 20 + x = 20 + 6 = $26

Plan A: 10 + 3x

Plan B: 20 + x

if x < 5 rides then plan A is better buy

if x = 5 both plans are the same

if x > 5 then plan B is the best buy

Prove:

x = 6 (rides)

plan A: 10 + 3x = 10 + 3(6) = 10+18 = $28

plan B: 20 + x = 20 + 6 = $26
