Question Sarah bought 4 tickets to a concert. The cost of the tickets and tax were $72.27. Sarah bought the tickets in Washington where sales tax is 9.5%. How much was each ticket to the concert?

Let \(t=\) ticket price. There are 4 tickets, which means \(4t\) is the price without tax. With tax, this is multiplied by \(1.095\). So, we get \(1.095(4t) = 72.27\). Divide both sides by \(1.095 \cdot 4\) to get that each ticket is worth \($16.50\)

 

hope this helped laugh
