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.

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
