Can you help me set this up?

Suppose you are trying to decide whether to buy ski equipment. Typically it costs $60 day to rent skis and buy a lift ticket. You can buy ski equipment for about $400. A lift ticket alone costs $35 for one day. Find the break-even point.

Thanks.

break-even is where

60x = 400+35x

where x is the number of days skiing

The answer to part "b" of that question is no. It would take 25 years to break even. Therefore it is not worth it. Thumbs for asian persuasion.
