Act problem: the community orchestra will give 18 performances this season. A season ticket cost $60 each, and a single performance cost $ 5 each. Huong purchased a season ticket. What is the minimum number of performances Huong must attend to save money by buying the season ticket instead of buying single performance tickets for the performances she already attended?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if he goes to x concerts, then he will spend 5x dollars (buying single tickets only)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you need to solve 5x = 60 for x to find when he will spend $60 on buying single tickets only

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be 12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, so the minimum is 13 because buying 13 single tickets will cost 13*5 = 65 dollars compare this with a season pass which only costs $60 so you're saving $5 if you buy a season pass (and you go to 13 concerts)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait but would'nt 12 be the answer then? and isnt 12 the minimum not 13?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112 is when the two prices are equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the answer isn't 12 because you could buy a season pass or 12 individual tickets and it wouldnt' matter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.113 is when you start saving money with the season pass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then the answer is 13 is how many performances she would be able to see with the season ticket instead of the singl performance ticket right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's the point where you would choose a season pass over a single ticket

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and 12 would be a distractor because a student like me would just divide 5 by 60 to find the # of tickets but the amount of performances he might see with the season ticket right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112 is where the two are equal, so buying either one won't save you money

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is why you bump it up from 12 to 13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know any possible answers a student might get if he did it a wrong way? i already got 2 of the answers i just need 2 more possible distractors though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol true but yeah i need 2 more wrong answers>.<

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm well just anything below 13 will work (as a wrong answer) example: 10*5 = 50 which is less than 60, so the individual tickets are still cheaper if you just go to 10 concerts

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or if you go to 9 concerts, then 9*5 = 45 , which is also less than 60 so it's still cheaper to buy individual tickets

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so is 13 the right answer then? cause the question is what is the minimum numbr of performscs the person must attend to save $ by using the season ticket instad of buying single performance tickets for the permances she attends/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol anything below 13 works, so 9, 10, or 11 works as a wrong answer
