Create an inequality to represent the following situation:
You are trying to decide whether to pay $120 for a season pass to an amusement park. If you buy the pass, you get an unlimited number of visits to the park and reduced parking for $7. If you do not buy the pass, you pay $32 for admission and $10 for parking each time you visit the park. After how many visits will the cost of the season pass be less than the cost of visiting without a pass?

What have you tried? How far have you gotten? Where are you stuck?

Please be complete. Thank you! :D
