music band came to town. The amphitheater filled all 50,000 seats at two-level pricing. Level 1 tickets are \$150 each, and level 2 tickets are \$250 each. The amphitheater made \$125,000 in ticket sales. The system of equations that models this scenario is: x + y = 50,000 150x + 250y = 125,000 What do the x and y represent in the system?

In the system of equations, x represents the number of tickets of Level 1 seats while y represents the number of tickets of Level 2 seats.

Given to us,

system of equations,

Equation 1, 150x + 250y = 125,000,

Equation 2,  x + y = 50,000,

Total number of seats = 50,000 seats,

Total number of sales = \$125,000,

Level 1 tickets price = \$150,

Level 2 tickets price = \$250,

Let us assume, Number of tickets of Level 1 is , and, Number of tickets of Level 2 is ,

Total sales = (Number of tickets of Level 1 x Level 1 tickets price ) + (Number of  tickets of Level 2 x Level 2 tickets price )

125,000 = ( x 150) + ( x 250)

125,000 = 150x + 250y

Now,

Total number of seats = Number of tickets of Level 1 + Number of tickets of Level 2

50,000 = x + y

Therefore, In the system of equations, x represents the number of tickets of Level 1 seats while y represents the number of tickets of Level 2 seats.

Jamie ordered 24 combo meals for \$5 each for a party. The service charge for home delivery for the whole purchase was \$6. Express the service charge as a percentage of the total cost.

24 * 5 = 120
120 + 6 = 126 - total cost - meals and service

6/126 *100% = 4,76%

service charge was 4,76% of total costs.

What is 7 2/6 plus 8 5/6

7  2/6 + 8  5/6
= (7 x 6 + 2)/6 + (8 x 6 + 5)/6
= (42 + 2)/6 + (48 + 5)/6
= 44/6 + 53/6
= (44 + 53)/6
= 97/6
= 16  1/6
7 2/6 + 8 5/6 =

(6 * 7 + 2) / 6 + (6 * 8 + 5) / 6 =

44/6 + 53/6 =

97/6 =

16 1/6
