FaFaFrappy wishes to join the elton country club to play golf. She has two membership options. A social membershi costs $1775 in annual dues. In addition, she would pay a $50 green fee and a $25 golf cart fee every time she played. A golf membership costs $2425 in annual dues. With this membership, Frappy would only pay a $25 golf cart fee when she played. How many times per year would She need to golf for the two options to cost the same amount of money?
hmmm...as far as word-problems go, do you instantly try to put things in an equation, perhaps one that looks like something you'd see in text you just read? like...
1775 + (50 + 25)X = 2425 + 25X ?
