A child bus ticket costs $0.40 and an adult’s ticket costs $0.70. If a group of 11 pays $5.90
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
Number of children |
Number of Adults |
Quantity A is greater.
Quantity B is greater.
The two quantities are equal.
The relationship cannot be determined from information given.
Can someone explain how the answer is supposed to be more adults than children in the below question. According to the answer A > C
This is how I solved : A+C = 11
.7A + .4C = $5.90 substitute A = 11 - C
.7(11-C) + .4C = $5.90
7.7 - .7C + .4C =$5.90
-.3C = -1.8
C = 6 Then go to the equation A + C =11, A = 5
Your approach and calculations are perfect.
