Bayside Insurance offers two health plans. Under Plan A, Sam would have to pay the first $200 of his medical bills, plus 35% of the rest.

Sam would save with Plan B if he had more than $_____ in bills

Both plans pay 35% of the rest, so plan B will never catch up with plan A.

Let x = amount of medical bill
We look for the value of x such that the benefits from each plan is equal by equating the benefits and solving for x.
200+0.35(x200) = 230+0.2(x230)
multiply out to get
130+0.35x = 184 + 0.2x
0.15x = 54
x=360
