Step-by-step explanation:
1. Package A: 20 for 230
2. Package B: 15 for 180
3. What is the price when they do one lesson?
4. Package A: 1 for 11.5
5. Package B: 1 for 12
Package A is the better deal.

2. 180 divided by 15 is 12 so that’s \$12 for each swimming class for package A
230 divided by 20 is 11.5 so that’s for each swimming class for package B
12 x 5 = 60 the cost for 5 more classes in package B
180+60=240 for 20 lessons in package B
While it’s \$230 for 20 lessons in package A

Therefore since it’s \$240 for 20 lessons in package B while it’s \$230 in 20 lessons for package A. Package A will be the better option to buy because it is \$10 less then package B
