Christian Woodruff has $160 to spend on parking and admission to Hershey. The parking will cost $12, and admission tickets will cost $20.50 per person, including tax. Write and solve an equation that can be used to determine the number of people that he can bring to Hershey Park including himself. *?

12  + 20.50N  ≤  160

 

20.50N  ≤  160  - 12

 

20.50 N ≤  148

 

N ≤  148  / 20.50

 

N ≤  7.2

 

He  can bring 7  people  (including himself)

Start with $160. and subtract $12 for parking because you have to pay that no matter how many people you buy tickets for.

160-12=148

Now you can see how many tickets you can buy with $148 by dividing by the price of the ticket which is $20.50

148/20.5=7.21951219512

You can buy 7 tickets

if you do the math, there is $4.50 leftover
