**Steve**, Monday, November 26, 2012 at 11:38amI assume the problem is to find at which point the two magicians will charge the same amount.

for x hours,

m = 30 + 15x

g = 50 + 10x

so, when does m=g?

30+15x = 50+10x

5x = 20

x = 4

So, at 4 hours,

marion charges 30 + 4*15 = 90

greg charges 50 + 4*10 = 90
