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.
