Jeremy and George both are looking to buy phones. Jeremy's phone costs $300 plus the monthly phone plan rate of $50 per month. George's phone costs $400 dollars plus the monthly phone plan rate of $35 per month. How many months will it take for Jeremy to out spend George?` What are their total costs at this month?
Jeremy's phone plan can be represented by the equation 300+50x = y George's phone plan can be represented by the equation 400+35x = y Solve using systems of equations. Subtract the two equations to solve for x. 100= 15x Therefore x=6.7 which round to 7 months. Plug in 7 for x into both equations to get their total amount spent. Jeremy: 300+ 50(7)= $650 George: 400+ 30(7)= $610
