Sean is deciding whether to select a satellite receiver or cable for his television programming. The satellite receiver costs $298.90 and the monthly charge is $68.70. With cable, there is no initial cost to purchase equipment, but the monthly charge for comparable channels is $74.80. After how many months will the total cost of the two systems be equal?

M = # of Months to Equality

You never again will be stuck with nothing to do. There will always be a first step in your head.
