Let x be the number of tickets in the last season. x+10%x=880 x+0.1x=880 1.1x=880 x=800 Therefore, there were 800 tickets sold in the last season.

putting the x in just messes me up u loss me with 1.1x=880 x=800 shouldn't it just be multipy and divide
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, just divide 880 by 1.1 to get the answer.
anonymous
  • anonymous
why is it 1.1
anonymous
  • anonymous
why do we add 1....this is not a joke I really don't understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
1.1 is from adding 1 to 10%(10%is equal to 0.1) the answer is 1.1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, please go back to the equation that i gave you. it will tell you why we have 1.

have you done pre algebra?

no

ah, that is why, actually, we are translating word problems to mathematical equations here.

that is the problem for me....just don't understand....I can do percentage but these are kicking my butt
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay let us do the percentage then
anonymous

P=br
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is br
anonymous
  • anonymous
so, try to analyze the problem. It will give us the idea that the tickets sold is 100%. If we are going to have the equation for the tickets sold for the present, it is number of tickets sold + 10% of it, right? so, we can have P=880 r=100%+10%, or r=110% P=br 880=b(110%) so, we are going to divide 880 by 110%(or this is 1.1 in decimal form) As we divide, we will get 800, which is the number of tickets sold in the last season.
