What music plan is a better deal?
site A: $29 per month plus .80 cents per download

site B: $17 per month plus $1.19 per download

write an equation and show how many downloads make site A a better deal.

My answer::

.80x + 29 > 1.19x + 17

after all my other work i got x>30.7

30 or more downloads would make site A a better deal

is my answer correct and did i put this sign: > correctly in my equation, please check, thanks

    Since we are talking about costs, a better deal is a lower cost, so the inequality should read:
    .80x + 29 < 1.19x + 17
    The answer is almost perfect...
    30.769 rounds to 30.8, although in this case, it does not count because we are talking about integers.
