PLEASE HELP will medal and fan
The table below shows the ticket rates for whale watching trips offered by Ocean Tours:
Age Ticket Price
Under 3 years free
3 to 12 years $36
Over 12 years $48
On a certain day, the company took 92 people on whale watching trips. There were 40 children aged 12 and under, of which some children were under 3 years. If x represents the number of children under 3 years, which equation can be used to find the value of x, where C represents the total amount of money collected from tickets that day?

A. (92 − x)36 + (92 − 40) ⋅ 48 = C
B.(40 + x)36 + (92 − (40 + x)) ⋅ 48 = C
C.(92 + x)36 + (92 − (40 + x)) ⋅ 48 = C

let me think

well im pretty sure its b or a.. so

- jim_thompson5910

x = number of children under 3 years
so if "There were 40 children aged 12 and under", then you have 40-x children who are between 3 and 12, agreed?

ohh so its D

- anonymous

i read it wrong

- jim_thompson5910

hold on, still thinking

- jim_thompson5910

x = # of people under 3
40 - x = # of people age 3 to age 12
92 - 40 = 52 people ages 13 and up

- jim_thompson5910

yeah so that makes it
(40-x)*36 + (92 - 40)*48
in total dollars

- anonymous

so D
