Mrs. Curtis wants to buy online tickets for a concert. Two options are given here.
Option 1: $53 for each ticket plus a shipping fee of $10
Option 2: $55 for each ticket and free shipping
What is a system of equations to represent the costs of the tickets?
Express your equations in the form of y=mx+b where x is the number of tickets purchased and y is the total cost.
I know the answers but i don't know how to get it
Total cost for option 1 is $ 53 times the number of tickets you purchase + $10 for shipping
let y = total cost
then y = total cost = 53 * # tickets you buy plus 10
Let x= #tickets
then y = total cost= 53 x + 10
y= 53x + 10 I have no other way to make it any clearer.....I hope you 'get it' now
