Cinema A sells a 12 pack of movie passes for 66 dollars. Cinema B sells a 5 pack of movie passess for 28 dollars. What is the cose per ticket for each cinema?
If you look at the words "cost per ticket," this will tell you how to solve the problem. The word "per" means to divide.
Proportion time .... 12/66 = 1/x (cross multiply) 12 for 66 = 1 for x dollars 12x = 66 12x/12 = 66/12 x = 5.5 Cinema A : each ticket costs $ 5.50 5/28 = 1/x (cross multiply) 5 for 28 = 1 for x dollars 5x = 28 5x/5 = 28/5 x = 5.6 Cinema B : each ticket costs $ 5.60
