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.**
