Part 2 - You are a student who plans to attend the amusement park for two days. This will be fun! Now it's time to figure out the cost. You won a coupon for 50% off a 1-day pass but it cannot be combined with other offers. The amusement park also offers a $5 student discount; however, you cannot get the $5 student discount off the 2-day pass. Use the information in the chart above to determine which option is the better deal.
Option 1: Buying a ticket at 50% off today and then purchasing a new 1-day ticket at the student price tomorrow.
Option 2: Buying a 2-day pass and not using the coupon at all.
