Will give medal and fan. The youth group is going on a trip to the state fair. The trip costs $58. Included in that price is $12 for a concert ticket and the cost of 2 passes, one for the rides and one for the game booths. Each of the passes costs the same price. Write an equation representing the cost of the trip, and determine the price of one pass. Solve your equation by showing your work and steps. Please help

    if 12/2=6 then wouldn't that be your answer?

    But would it be 6 for each pass? Because $12.00 is the total cost of the passes and concert ticket so would that make it 3?

    Ooooooooh I miss calculated because what I should've done is 12 divided by 3 because the cost is 12 dollars for three things. so it'd make more sense on doing 12/3 which equals 4. Does that make sense to you?
