Sample Problem

You play basketball in your school’s indoor stadium. You have two payment options. Option A is to buy a membership card and pay $2 each time you go to the gym. Option B is to pay $4 each time you go. A membership card costs $20. After how many times will the cost of Option A be equal to the cost of Option B?



2t + 20 = 4t

20 = 2t

t = 10
