John receives a $25 gift card to the theater. It cost $6.50 for shows before 4:00 and $9.75 for shows after 4:00.
If John sees the movie after 4:00, the equation that gives the balance remaining is R = $25 - x*9.75 where R is the balance remaining and x is the number of shows seen.
If John goes with two of his friends for x number of shows, the total amount spent is given by 3*x*9.75. If john uses the $25 gift card, the amount to be paid out of pocket is A = 3*x*9.75 - 25
If the three see the 2:00 show the amount saved is given by S = 3*(9.75 - 6.5)
One person goes to movie and pays price m.
m= $6.50 if John goes before 4 o'clock
m=$9.75 if John goes after 4 o'clock
1. John goes to movie after 4 o'clock thus,
2. John and his two friends go after 4 o'clock
b=25- 3 x m
=> They have to pay out-of-pocket $4.25.
But m= 6.50
b=25-3 x 6.50
They save by going to a 2 o'clock = $ 5.50
