a)  Platinum costs $60 for the registration fee and $20 per month

Let C be the total cost for x monts and we have that

C  =  60 + 20x    (1)

 

b) Super Fit costs $150 for the registration and $10 per month

The cost, C, for x months can be given by

C = 150 + 10x  (2)

 

c) Platinum  after 1 month would cost   60 + 20(1)  = $80

    Super Fit after 1 month would cost  150 + 10(1)   = $160

So...Tom would  pay less than Edward in the first month

Platinum after 1 year = 12 months would cost  60 + 20(12)  = $300

Super Fit after 1 year would cost  150 + 10(12)  = $270

So Edward would pay less after1 year

 

d) Set (1)  and (2) equal to find the equalized costs after x  months

 

60 + 20x = 150 + 10x     subtract 10x, 60  from both sides

10x  = 90    divide both sides by  10

x  = 9  months  they cost the same

 

e)  If you're in it for the long term, Super Fit is the better deal because the slope of (2)  < slope of (1)

If you plan to only stay in for 8 months, then Platinum is the better deal
