EMERGENCY PLEASE HELP WILL FAN AND MEDAL The regular price of a child's entry ticket to a water park is $9 less than that for an adult's. The park offers half off all entry tickets during the off-peak season. The Sandlers paid a total of $132 for 1 adult ticket and 4 child's tickets to the water park during the off-peak season. The following equation represents this situation, where x represents the regular price of an adult ticket:
132 = one-halfx + 2(x − 9)
What is the regular price of a child's ticket?

NO IT WAS 132

- anonymous

child = c
adult = a
total = t
c = a - 9
t = 132
t = 1/2a + 2c
t = 1/2a + 2(a - 9)
1/2a + 2a - 18 = 132
5a = 228
a = $45.60
Therefore child = 45.60 - 9.00 = $36.60

hold on. im sorry, i gave you the wrong answer.

- anonymous

OK

- anonymous

That equation is correct.
132 = 1/2x + 2(x - 9)
Solve for x to get the regular price of an adult ticket.
132 = 1/2x + 2x - 18
150 = 2.5 x
60 = x
minus 9 is 51, the answer is 51
