two health plans. Under plan A, Amy would have to pay the first \$60 of her medical bills, plus 30% of the rest. Plan B would pay the first \$140, but only 20% of the rest. For what amount of medical bills will plan B save Giselle money? Assume she has over \$140 in bills.
A= \$60 +30x
B= \$140 + 20x
then I get confused

• Math -

PlanAcosts=60+(Bills-60)*.30
PlanBcosts=140+(Bills-140)*.2
set them equal, and solve for Bills.

Thanks Bobpursley for the push in the right direction
