Mustafa’s soccer team is planning a school dance as a fundraiser. The DJ charges $200 and decorations cost $100. The team decides to charge each student $5.00 to attend the dance. If n represents the number of students attending the dance, which equation can be used to find the number of students needed to make $1,500 in profit? 5n – 300 = 1,500 5n + 300 = 1,500 5n – 200 + 100n = 1,500 5n – 100 – 200n = 1,500

    Well the $200 and $300 are both constants, meaning they don't depend on the number of students
