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 D.(40 − x)36 + (92 − 40) ⋅ 48 = C

    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?

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