(This one is one that I already have notes for. However, I can not get the answer for the life of me)

Bayside insurance offers two health plans. Under plan A, Giselle would have to pay the first \$60 of her medical bills, plus 25% of the rest. Under plan B, Giselle would pay the first \$170, but only 20% of the rest. For what amount of mediacl bills will plan B save Giselle money? Assume she has over \$170 in bills.
Giselle would save with paln B if she had more than \$___ in bills.

Here is part of my notes to get started but I'm not getting it after about half way through.....
Plan A would pay \$60+25%(\$60-\$170)=
Plan B would pay \$170+20%(\$170-\$170)=
Cost of Plan B \$170+0.20(x-\$170)
Cost of Plan A \$60+0.25(x-\$170)
\$170+0.20(x-\$170)<\$60+0.25(x-\$170)
\$170+0.20x-(0.20)(\$170)<\$60+0.25-(0.30)(\$170)
(These are the first steps)
