A daily pass costs $62. A season ski pass costs $450. The skier would have to rent skis with either pass for $30 per day. How many days would the skier have to go skiing in order to make the season pass less expensive than the daily passes? Let d be the number of days the skier attends. Calculate the daily cost: Daily Total Cost = Daily Cost + Rental Cost Daily Total Cost = 62d + 30d Daily Total Cost = 92d Calculate Season Cost: Season Total Cost = Season Fee + Rental Cost Season Total Cost = 450 + 30d Set the daily total cost and season cost equal to each other: 450 + 30d = 92d Typing this equation into the search engine, we get d = 7.258. We round up to the next full day of 8. Now check our work: Daily Total Cost for 8 days = 92(8) = 736 Season Cost for 8 days = 30(8) + 450 = 240 + 450 = 710. Therefore, the skier needs to go at least 8 days to make the season cost less than the daily cot.
