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(x-200) = 230+0.2(x-230)

multiply out to get

130+0.35x = 184 + 0.2x

0.15x = 54

x=360
