Part B: Solve your equation in Part A to find the price of each floor seat ticket. How do you know your solution is correct? (5 points)
We can let the cost of each ticket be x.
There were about 25 tickets sold, which gives us 25x.
We know that 25 tickets were sold for a total of 870.75$$$
That gives us the equation: 25x=870.75
x = $34.83 per ticket
I know my solution is right because I am smart...
Nah...jk, I know its right because I substituted the price of each ticket back into the original equation:
Since the above equation is true, I know each ticket it work $34.83.
