Under Plan B Giselle would pay the first \$140 but only 25% of the rest. For what amount of medical bills would plan B save Giselle money. Assume she has over \$140 in bills. Giselle would save with plan B if she had more than \$ 980 in bills?

Plan A \$80 +30%
Plan B \$140 +25%

80+.30(x-80)>140+.25(x-140)
80+.30x - 80*.30>140+.25x – 140*.25
80+.30x – 24>140 +.25x – 35
56+.30x>105+.25x
56 + .05x >105
.05x>49
x>\$980
