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.

- anonymous

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

I don't know how to, can you help me step by step?

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

- Flvs.net

No

- anonymous

Correct! So what do you do with the 14?

- Flvs.net

Keep it?

- anonymous

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?

- Flvs.net

I Don't know. :( @alexistheking777

- anonymous

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

- Flvs.net

How do I do the "x" part?

- anonymous

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

- Flvs.net

14-14=0
62-14=48

- anonymous

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?

- Flvs.net

I don't know, how?

- anonymous

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

- Flvs.net

I don't know how to do 2x/2
But 48/2= 24

- anonymous

Okay I will draw it out and it will seem easy.

- anonymous

|dw:1435259401932:dw|
So you see what I did I crossed out the two,

- Flvs.net

Okay

- anonymous

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

- Flvs.net

I DON'T KNOW!! >_<

- anonymous

What????
What is 48/2?

- Flvs.net

24

- anonymous

Okay so if the only thing left is x, x=?

- Flvs.net

0?

- anonymous

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=?

- anonymous

@Flvs.net Come on Man we almost got it.

- Flvs.net

:( I don't know how to solve it.

- anonymous

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

- Flvs.net

THANK YOU!

- anonymous

@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 ?
