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 offpeak season. The Sandlers paid a total of $132 for 1 adult ticket and 4 child's tickets to the water park during the offpeak season. The following equation represents this situation, where x represents the regular price of an adult ticket:
132 = onehalfx + 2(x − 9)
What is the regular price of a child's ticket?
$60
$57
$51
$42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02.5x?? by combining 2 and .5, since they are both being multiplied by x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup. And we can add 18 to both sides The equation now looks like this: 150 = 2.5x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So to isolate x, we divide by 2.5 on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup. You have to subtract 9 to get the child's because x is represented as the adult's ticket
