Mr.branson bought a total of 9 tickets to the zoo. he bought children tickes at the rate of 6.50 and adult tickts for 9.25 each. if he spent 69.50 altogether, how many adult tickets did mr.branson purchase
Hey guest! Lets start! First the way I learend it is that you first make it all that he bought kid tickets. If he only bought kid tickets it would cost him $58.50. Then you subtract 69.50 and 58.50 which gets you 11. Then you subtract 9.25 from 6.50 to get 2.75. Then you divide 11 by 2.75 which gets you 4! That means that he bought 4 adult tickets! Lets see if we are correct!
4*9.25=37. Then 6.50*5=32.5. 37+32.50=69.50! So he bought 4 adult tickets!
