I will Medal and Fan, please help me I need help working, i dont want the answer The regular price of a child's entry ticket to a water park is $9 less than that for an adult's. The park offers half off all entry tickets during the off-peak season. The Sandlers paid a total of $132 for 1 adult ticket and 4 child's tickets to the water park during the off-peak season. The following equation represents this situation, where x represents the regular price of an adult ticket: 132 = one-halfx + 2(x − 9) What is the regular price of a child's ticket? $60 $57 $51 $42

So we have to solve for x, because that is the regular price. The first thing you should do is distribute the 2 132 = .5x + 2x - 18

2.5x?? by combining 2 and .5, since they are both being multiplied by x
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup. And we can add 18 to both sides The equation now looks like this: 150 = 2.5x
anonymous
  • anonymous
So to isolate x, we divide by 2.5 on both sides

ok so 60?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah!
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh then we would subtract 9, since it is 9 dollars more

Yes because, x=60 is the adults price but the question is asking about child's price
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok... the childs price isnt in the equation, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup. You have to subtract 9 to get the child's because x is represented as the adult's ticket

  • anonymous
