For an annual membership fee of $500, Mr. Bailey can join a country club that would allow him to play a round of golf for $35.  Without the membership fee, the country club charges $55 for each round of golf.  Write and solve an equation to determine how many rounds of gold Mr. Bailey would have to play for the cost to be the same with and without a membership

Let x rounds are required to play

35x+500 = 55x

500 =30x

x = 16.66 ====17 rounds

Wouldn't I subtract 35x from each side making it 500=15X?

oh .... sorry
.. you are correct

(55-35)x = 500

20x = 500

x = 25
