please help me write algebraic equation/ solution if membership for local zoo is $135, members do not pay admission but they are charged $3. to park . non-members admission is $25. for the zoo and $5. for parking. After how many visits have members and non-members paid the same amt? I believe answer is 5 visits

135 +( 5 x 3) = 5(25) + 5(5)

150 = 150

after n visits

cost for members = 135 + 3n

cost for non-members = 25n + 5n = 30n

when is 30n = 135 + 3n ?

27n = 135

n = 135/27 = 5

you are correct
