A school is planning an event to raise $1,000 for charity. The cost of organizing the event is $200. The tickets are priced at $6 per child and $8 per adult. If x children and y adults attend the event, the equation that represents the total revenue that the organizers must collect from ticket sales to raise the targeted amount of $1,000 after paying for the $200 in expenses is . If the event were only for adults, how many adults would have to attend for the organizers to raise the targeted amount & how would you set it up as a equation with the given information ?

    ok forget that question, what about this one @Hero Paul works for a company that deals in paints and dyes. He is paid a fixed monthly salary plus 15 percent commission on monthly sales over $20,000 If Paul manages to achieve total monthly sales of $x, which is over $20,000, the function f(x) representing Paul's monthly sales over $20,000 is given by a. x-20,000 b. x+20,000 c. 20,000-x d. 20,000/x If x is the sales amount over $20,000, the function g(x) giving Paul's commission is a. 0.15-x b. 0.15x c. 15-x/100 d. 0.15/x The function g(f(x)) representing Paul's commission on monthly sales above $20,000, where x is Paul's total monthly sales amount, is given by a. x-0.15(20,000) b. (20,000-x)/0.15 c. 0.15(x-20,000) d. 0.15x-20,000

    Open Study was not designed so that one question at a time can be posted per thread. See the blue box above? That's the area where the question is posted. Everything afterwards counts as the "discussion".

    You have to post it as a separate question, otherwise, I can't deal with you. It's annoying when you use Open Study in a manner that it was not designed for. I just explained to you how to use OS.
