membership fee of $12.00, but charges to
rent each movie is only $1.50 per movie.
Another store has no membership fee, but it
costs $3.00 to rent each movie. How many
movies need to be rented each month for
the total fees to be the same from either
company?

Answer:

8

Step-by-step explanation:

With the information from the question, you create the equation 1.5x+12=3x where x represents the fee per movie. subtract 1.5x on each side, leaving you with 12=1.5x, and divide 12 by 1.5, leaving you with the answer of x=8.
