Setup the equation like this

45 + 2.50 x = 3.75 x

Here

1. x= NUMBER OF MOVIES
2. 45= Annual rate
3. 2.50= price of movie with annual fee
4. 3.75= price of movie with no fee

Now we solve for x. Move x to one side by subtracting 2.50x on each side

45 = 1.25 x

We want x by itself, so divide 45 by each side.

45 1.25 = x

x = 36
