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.

Option 1   y = 53 x + 10

Option 2   y = 55 x

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 cheeky
