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
