    Calculating price breaks

    OK, If you have a fire call a fireman, got a leaking sink... a plumber.

    I got a math question and no clue how to solve it. I hope you can help me. So here I am calling on all math wizards.

    I am a web developer and need help coming up witha formula to figure out a pricing schedule that goes as follows.

    I want to charge fire departments ( oh... I'm a firefighter too) a subscription fee to use my site. The Subscription fee goes like this.

    $149 per month (includes 1 fire station) Then $30 for each additional fire station.

    Wait!

    I want to give discounts for those with a bunch of stations.

    So I think the following sounds pretty good.

    I want to charge $30 for 1 station. If you have 50 stations than I'll only charge you $15 for each station.

    So thats $30 for 1 station (you only have one station)
    $15 for each station if you have 50 stations.

    Here is where you come in.

    I wnat to make a sliding scale.

    So, how much would I charge you if you have 15 stations?

    How about 26 stations?

    I don't even know where to start to figure this out.

    I would be tickled pink, and very appritiative if you could help with a formula.

    I enter qty of stations and formula calcs the price.

    Thanks.

    Mike...

    Hmm, interesting request!

    What programming languages are being incorporated into the design of the website? It might be far easier to design a sliding price scale function that way.
