    The membership fee is a one-time charge, so it is a constant to be added to the number of classes one takes. For FF, cost=y1=90+5x, where y1 is cost for FF, x=number of classes. At DIF, cost=y2=0+35x, again, x is the number of classes. Try to plot them (for example at Desmos. The point where the two lines intersect represent the cross-over for the number of classes taken. The higher curve means it is more expensive.
