One bowling charges \$5.50 for shoe rental plus \$2.50 per game. A second bowling alley charges \$4.00 for shoe rental plus \$3.00 per game. If one person rents a pair of shoes to bowl, how many games should they bowl to make the first bowling alley cheaper than the second bowling alley.

1. First bowling alley:

1 game = \$8.00
2 games = 10.50
3 games = 13.00

Second alley:

1 game = 7.00
2 games = 10.00
3 games = 13.00

Take it from there.
