Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£14.45 = 6.09. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 7 trips from Edinburgh to Dundee (one way journey).
