B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Dundee Edinburgh ticket (i.e.: £9.99)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Now divide that number by C. It will give you the average number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£9.99 = 8.81. Your railcard will be worth the investment after at least 9 trips from Dundee to Edinburgh (one way journey).
