# club A charge $11 for membership and$11 monthly. Club B charge $27 membership and$7 monthly. After how many many months will they charge the same? How much for each?

Let $m$ be the number of months. Since Club A charges $11 only one time and charges$11 per month, the total charge after $m$ months is $\11 + \11m$. Similarly, the total charge after $m$ months for Club B is $\27 + \7m$. Since we want to find after how many months the two clubs charge the same amount, we can set those two expressions equal to each other and solve: $\11 + \11m = \27 + \7m$ $\4m = \16$ $\bf m = 4$ So, Club A and Club B will charge the same amount after 4 months. To find how much they charge, just plug $m$ back into one of the original equations: $\11 + \11m = \11 + \11(4) = \bf \55$
