Renee will have to pay $8 for each ticket. Since you do not know how many tickets this will be, you will have to use a variable, or letter to represent it. Let's say you use "t" for tickets.
So Renee's receipt would look like:
QTY x PRICE = TOTAL
t 8 50
In algebra, we write the equation: 8t = 50
To figure out the number of tickets, you will have to divide by 8 on both sides (opposite math).
This results in the answer: t = 6.25
Can Renee really buy 6.25 tickets? Is this possible?
So what is the true answer for the word problem? How many tickets can she get for $50? 6 tickets, or 7 tickets?
The answer would be 6 since it is not possible to buy part of a ticket.
So, how many tickets does this leave available for her daughter's friends? 4 ,Because it is 6 tickets so Renee wanna take her daughter so 6-2=4 so she can only take 4 friends

so i was right the first time when i said 8t divided by 50 =6.25

2. A plumber charges a flat rate of $50 and $25 an hour for the work. The plumber received $150 for his services. How many hours did the plumber work?

- anonymous

50+25h=150 subtract 50 on both sides you will get 100 then divide 25 into 100 and get 4
The plumber only worked 4 hours.
THIS IS WHAT I GOT

- anonymous

WAIT don't delete it i was going to see how you did it because she said i did something wrong

- anonymous

ok this one would also be 6 because 150 div by 25 =6

- anonymous

Let's solve your equation step-by-step.
50f+25=150
Step 1: Subtract 25 from both sides.
50f+25−25=150−25
50f=125
Step 2: Divide both sides by 50.
50f50=12550
f=52
Answer:
f=52

its 6
