Explain how to solve:

Sam is ordering pizza. Tony's Pizza charges $7 for a large cheese pizza plus $.75 for each additional topping. Maria's Pizza charges $8 for a large cheese pizza plus $.50 for each additional topping. For what number of toppings will the cost of a large pizza be the same at either restaurant?

  • math -

    Tony charges 7 + .75t for a pizza with t extra toppings.

    Maria charges 8 + .5t for the same pizza.

    so, we want to know, when does

    7 + .75t = 8 + .5t
    .25t = 1
    t = 4

    So, a pizza with 4 extra toppings costs

    7.00 + 4*.75 = 10.00 at Tony's, and
    8.00 + 4*.50 = 10.00 at Maria's.

    So, for extra credit, who charges less for a pizza with 3 extra toppings? How about 5 extra toppings?
