At Water World the admission fee is $17.00, and you can rent an inner tube for $0.75 per hour. You can use the formula P = 17.00 + 0.75 h to find the total cost for admission plus renting an inner tube. a. Solve the formula P = 17.00 + 0.75 h for h. Explain your steps for solving the formula for h. b. For how many hours can you rent an inner tube if you only have $20.75 to spend? Explain your method for finding the answer.

    A) you need to get h by itself soo minus the 17 on both sides then divide by .75 both sides soo you have 17.00p/.75 the 17.00 is per person and the .75 is for the hrs you are trying to find the hrs therefore this equation

    B)you are trying to find out how many hrs you can spend at waterworld with x-amount of $$ soo plug in $20.75 for the total and solve for h soo 17.00(20.75)/.75=H
