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?

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
I'm sorry! I gtg and can't help with the other one but I'm sure @texaschic101 could totally handle it :) :)
