Answer:

4 movies, $20

Step-by-step explanation:

Given data

Family Videocharges $10 for a monthly membership and

$2.50 per movie

let the number of movies be x

and the charge for x movies be y

y= 10+2.5x———-1

Babe’s Moviescharges a $12

membership and $2 per

movie.

let the number of movies be x

and the charge for x movies be y

y= 12+2x———-2

equate 1 and 2

10+2.5x= 12+2x

collect like terms

12-10= 2.5x-2x

2= 0.5x

x= 2/0.5

x= 4 movies

put x= 4 in equation 1 or 2

y= 12+2x———-2

y= 12+2*4

y= 12+8

y= $20
