The county fair charges $1.25 per ticket for the rides. Star bought 25 tickets for the rides and spent a total of $43.75 at the fair. Star spent her money only on ride tickets and fair admission. The price of the fair admission is the same for everyone. Write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent the cost for anyone who only pays for ride tickets and fair admission. Use y to represent the total cost and x to represent the number of ride tickets.
First we must figure out what the fair admission is. In order to do that we need to figure out how much star spent on tickets. 1.25 * 25 = 31.25 The total price was $43.75 and she spent $31.25 on tickets. We can figure out fair admission by subtracting. 43.75 - 31.25 = 12.5 We can conclude that fair admission cost $12.50 Slope intercept form is Y=mx+b So, Y=1.25x+12.5
