The regular price of a child's entry ticket to a water park is $6 less than that for an adult's. The park offers half off all entry tickets during the offpeak season. The Sandlers paid a total of $78 for 1 adult ticket and 2 child's tickets to the water park during the offpeak season. The following equation represents this situation, where x represents the regular price of an adult ticket:
78 = 1 over 2x + (x − 6)
What is the regular price of a child's ticket?
$50 $56 $75 $81

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Regularly: c = a6 and a = a But this is during the offpeak season, so everything is half off: c = (a6)/2 and a = a/2 So the equation for offpeak is: 78 = (a/2) + 2((a6)/2) {the two 2s on the right side of the plus sign will cancel each other out} 78 = (a/2) + (a  6) Remove parentheses through distributing and then add 6 to both sides: 84 = a/2 + a 84 = a(1/2 + 1) 84 = a(1.5) Divide both sides by 1.5 a = 56 which is the adult ticket price. Subtract 6 from that to get the child's ticket price: $50. So yeah your right
