it costs $12.50 to see a movie at a theater near jason's house. it only costs $1,95 to rent a dvd from an online service a dvd player costs $125 to the nearest whole number, how many movies must jason watch on dvd instead of at the theater before he recover the cost of the dvd player

Reiny
going to the theatre
C = 12.5n, where n is the number of movies seen
buying a player, then renting
C = 125 + 1.95n
12.5n = 125 + 1.95n
10.55n = 125
n = 11.8
I will let you interpret that decimal answer
