    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

    okay, just divide 880 by 1.1 to get the answer.

    1.1 is from adding 1 to 10%(10%is equal to 0.1) the answer is 1.1.

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

    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.
