So take the first sentence again. let A be the sAturday attendence and U be the sUnday attendence.
What is the equation given by the first sentence.
"Saturday's attendence was three times Sunday's attendance"
Right. So A=Saturday and U=Sunday Equation: U*3=A
Yes. Now if the total attendance for both nights was 56000. What is the equation that represents this fact?
Yep. Now take what you know about A and substitute it out in that equation.
Ok. This is where Im stuck! All I know is that A is 3 times U.
Right. So if A = 3U then doesn't A + U = 3U + U ?
O M G ! I think I got it! It just clicked! So my equation would be 3U+U=4U I then take 4U and divide it by the total 56000 I get 14,000. U=14,000 fans. RIGHT?
i would then take the 14000 and subtract that by the total 56000 and get the answer for A. A=42000 Is this it?
Yep, you got it.
Alternatively you could have multiplied U by 3 to get A.
OH WHAT JOY! PolPak, U f**kin rock! Thanks so much for being my personal tutor tonight! I really do appreciate it! I think I got it now!
I'm really glad =)
Have a great and relaxing night! Thanks again! ^_^
