Can you help me set this up?
Suppose you are trying to decide whether to buy ski equipment. Typically it costs \$60 day to rent skis and buy a lift ticket. You can buy ski equipment for about \$400. A lift ticket alone costs \$35 for one day. Find the break-even point.

Thanks.

break-even is where

60x = 400+35x

where x is the number of days skiing

I don't like math

The answer to part "b" of that question is no. It would take 25 years to break even. Therefore it is not worth it. Thumbs for asian persuasion.
