Nathan is going to a carnival that has games and rides. Each game costs $1 and each ride costs $3.75. Nathan spent $34 altogether at the carnival and the number of rides he went on is twice the number of games he played.

Let x represents the number of g and y represents the number of r.

As the number of r are two times the number of g so we have:


As the price of one g is \$~1 so for x number of g the total price is 1x.

As the price of one r is \$~3.75 so for y number of r the total price is 3.75\times y.

The two equation connstitute the following system of equations:


1 x+3.75y=34

Solving the system we get:

The number of g the person performed is 4 and the number of r the person move on is 8.
