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.
Now you can see how many tickets you can buy with $148 by dividing by the price of the ticket which is $20.50
You can buy 7 tickets
if you do the math, there is $4.50 leftover
