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. Under Plan B, Sam would pay the first $230, but only 35% of the rest. For what amount of medical bills will Plan B save Sam money? Assume he was over $230 in bills. Sam would save with Plan B if he had more than $_____ in bills

  • Typo? -

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

    thank you for showing me my mistake can you please help me

    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
