    The 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.

    let the price for one pass be x so the total expenditure is 14+2x=62 solve the eqution

    I will I guess so you got 14 + 2x = 62 is there an x value on both sides?

    Correct! So what do you do with the 14?

    Oops 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?

    You subtract 14 to both sides. What is: 14 - 14 + 2x = 62 - 14

    How do I do the "x" part?

    Don't worry about the x part yet. To make it easier: What is 14-14? What is 62-14?

    14-14=0 62-14=48

    Correct since so 14-14+2x=62-14 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?

    You divide both sides by 2. So what is 2x divided by 2? 48 divided by 2?

    Now you already said 48/2 is 24 and you don't cross out x so what does x equal?

    Bruh, 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=?

    x=24 is your answer so one pass is $24.

    @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 ?
