Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The youth group is going on a trip to the state fair. The trip costs $62. Included in that price is $14 for a concert ticket and the cost of 2 passes, one for the rides and one for the game booths. Each of the passes costs the same price. Write an equation representing the cost of the trip, and determine the price of one pass. Solve your equation by showing your work and steps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will I guess so you got 14 + 2x = 62 is there an x value on both sides?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! So what do you do with the 14?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oops that's not right because if you keep it, the equation still isn't simplified. So you have to cancel the 14 how do you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You subtract 14 to both sides. What is: 14  14 + 2x = 62  14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't worry about the x part yet. To make it easier: What is 1414? What is 6214?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct since so 1414+2x=6214 is 0+2x=48 which is the same as 2x=48. Now what do we do to get rid of the two, remember we can't subtract because we will get 0= 2x + 48 which is wrong. So how do we get rid of 2x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You divide both sides by 2. So what is 2x divided by 2? 48 divided by 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know how to do 2x/2 But 48/2= 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1435259401932:dw So you see what I did I crossed out the two,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you already said 48/2 is 24 and you don't cross out x so what does x equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What???? What is 48/2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so if the only thing left is x, x=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bruh, you said the answer two times already. Think about it man if you have 24 and x how can x equal zero? (Hint: you don't have x and 0 you have x and 24) So x=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x=24 is your answer so one pass is $24.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Flvs.net in the equation, you have a left hand side and a right hand side now the way alex solved it , you are left with only x on the left hand side and 24 on theright hand side, so what is x ?
