## haleylooove 2 years ago Your school drama club is putting on a play and hopes to raise \$600 from ticket sales. They sell adult tickets for \$8 each and student tickets for \$5 each. Let x represent the number of adult tickets and y represent the number of student tickets. The equation to represent the number of tickets sold to reach their goal, 8x+ 5y = 600, is graphed below. If 40 adult tickets are sold, how many student tickets must be sold to reach their goal?

OK! Hold on. I'm solving :)

2. haleylooove

okay!

3. mayrabris2cute

Ok. 56 kids.

4. mayrabris2cute

56 student tickets must be sold to reach the goal

8x + 5y = 600 8(40) + 5y = 600 320 + 5y = 600 5y = 600 - 320 5y = 280 x = 56 ANSWER : 56 student must be sold to reach their goal.

Becauseee!!! Adult: \$8 * 40 = 320. So you already have 320. 600 - 320 = 280. Divide that by 5, and you get 56 :) I was first to answer :)

okay thank you! could you help me with this one also? please! The local gym charges members a monthly fee of \$50 plus an additional \$2 every time you want to use the pool. Let p represent the number of times you used the pool in one month and C represent the total cost for your monthly membership. Write an equation to find the total cost of your monthly membership to the gym.

she is right....she was first...lol

50 + 2p = C
