# Movie Rental Plans from Netflix

## Movie Rental Plans

Netflix offers unlimited DVD rentals for a standard fee per month. For renting additional HD movies a standard rate can be added to your monthly bill or you can subscribe to our premium plan for unlimited viewing content.

The y-intercepts for each line are the standard fee per month.

The number of HD movies rented is the x variable.

The bill after one month is the y variable.

## Standard Plan

\$8.00/month for unlimited DVD rentals + \$1.00/HD DVD rented

Let y represent the Monthly Bill

Let x represent the Number of HD Movies Rented

Equation of the Line: y = x + 8

\$16.00/month for unlimited DVD and HD rentals

Let y represent the Monthly Bill

Equation of the Line: y = 16

## Premium Plan vs. Standard Plan

Point of Intersection of the Lines y = x + 8 and y = 16 is (8,16)

Does it Satisfy Both Equations?

y = x + 8

16 = 8 + 8

16 = 16

y = 16

16 = 16

Yes.

Why is it important?

At this point it does not matter which plan saves you more money, the cost of each plan is the same when you rent 8 HD Movies from each plan.
