13. Joining the frequent visitor program at the planetarium costs $5 per year, Write an equation that can be used to determine n, the number of visits per year for which the cost of being a member of the frequent visitor program is equal to the cost of not being a member. Tickets cost $11 for each student who is a member of the planetarium's frequent visitor program and $13 for each student who is not a member.
14 : Solve your equation from item 13. List a property of equality or provide an explanation for each step
15: Explain the meaning of the solution of the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's what i got too but solving it was the hardest part i tried to search everywhere

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to solve for it we would need to make up an x and a y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think that x=13 and y=11 but how do you justify that that is your answer you know by using mathematical steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let me re make the equation then :)

shreenithaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but when it says n is the number of total visitors, it just gets confusing

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok let me explain it :)

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1n is the number of visitors, in other word total visitors not just members or vice versa. with me so far?

shreenithaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with this equation we get 2.5 visits per year which is wrong.. but we are on the right tracks now!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets make one more change to the equation

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remebered i said N was the total visits correct

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this means that n can not be the same for both 11 and and 13

shreenithaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah beacuse not the same amount of people have membership and not so ur right

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the new equation is 5 +11x = N  13y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what we need to prove is that buying membership and paing 11 dolars or just not being a member is the same in this equation

jennyrlz
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so following the equation if you only go 2.5 times a year then it will cost you the same as if you buy membership and go 2.5 times a year

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.111(2.5) = 27.5 =27.5 + 5 =32.5 13(2.5) = 32.5

jennyrlz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i was mislead by the impossibility of visiting 2.5 times, but that doesn't matter, the question is just asking for an equation that would make it theoretically possible for them them to result in the same price!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1subtraction equality means that if we subtract the same number to both sides we still end up with the same equations for example the equation 5=5, if we subtract the same numbeer from both sides, it will still be true. 25 =52 = 3=3
