Equation: 

 

25x=870.75

 

A.

 

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

 

B. 

 

25x=870.75

 

x= 870.75/25

 

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:

 

25(34.83)=870.75

 

Since the above equation is true, I know each ticket it work $34.83.
