Well, you set up two separate equations for cost. Agency A would be y=110+26x and Agency B would be y=70+54x. Then let equation A equal equation B and solve.

I'm confused I just ntered it into a graphing calculator and it didn't show that any days existed where the costs are the same

That's the only solution when you solve the equation. So it's the only days they would be equal.
