3. A drama club is planning a bus trip to New York City to see a Broadway play. The cost per person for the bus rental varies inversely as the number of people going on the trip. It will cost $30 per person if 44 people go on the trip. How much will it cost per person if 60 people go on the trip? Round your answer to the nearest cent, if necessary. $22.00 $40.91 $1,320.00 $21.29

    Again, you start with the equation\[y=\frac{k}{x}\]since it's inversely proportional. What should we now put in for x and y?

    y=30? and x=60?

    We're assuming x is the number of people, and y is the cost per person. We know that when 44 people go, it costs 30 dollars per person. So we use y=30 and x=44.

    That's your \(k\), but not the price per person. Now you need to go back to \[y=\frac{k}{x}\] except now you know k, and you're told to find y when x=60.
