The price of daily admission at an amusement park is $36. The park sells an unlimited season pass for $240. How many trips would you need to make with the season ticket in order for it to cost less than paying the daily admission rate?

A 7

Let x equal the number of daily tickets you would purchase. 36x = the daily ticket cost.
240 < 36x
240/36 < x
62/3 < x
You would need to use the ticket more than 62/3 times (or 7 times) in order for it to be cheaper to use the season ticket.
