    You would have to do these two plans separately and then compare how much she pays for each plan. Plan A - She pays the first $170, so you subtract that from $230 to get the rest, which is $60. You then get 40% of that to get $15. Here, she would have paid the first $170 and the additional $15, totalling to $185. Subtract $185 from $230 to find her savings, which would be $45. Plan B - She pays the first $230, so you subtract that from her bill of $230. There's nothing left to apply 30% to, so there is no additional cost. She pays $230 with Plan B, which would be a $0 savings.
