One hiking club charges $20 to become a member and $5 to participate on each hike. Anotherclub charges no membership fee, but charges $7 to participate on each hike. How many hikes must you go on to make the first club more economical ?(:

Just make up a table of cost vs number of hikes for each club

#Hikes #1 Cost #2 Cost

0 20 0

2 30 14

4 40 28

6 50 42

8 60 56

10 70 70

The club with the membership fee is more economical if you take more than 10 hikes.

11. It is $20 to start, every hike, you are charged $2 more from the second company. If you divide 20 by 2, 10 will be even and at 11 it will be 2 $ more.
