At Silver Gym, membership is $35 a month and personal training sesdsions are $25 each. At Fit Factor membership is $75 a month, and personal training sessions are $15 each. In one month how many personal training sessions would Sarah have to buy to make the total cost at the two gyms equal?

Total cost of Silver Gym  = 35 + 25N     where N is the number of sessions

Total cost of Fit Factor  = 75 + 15N    

 

To find out when the costs are equal....set the equations equal

 

35 + 25N  = 75 + 15N     subtract 15N from both sides

 

35 + 10N  = 75        subtract 35 from both sides 

 

10N  = 40         divide both sides by 10

 

N  = 4   sessions
