Let the variable represent what you do not know. That is, how many people can go to the park.
x = number of people going to the park Parking is 12.25, tickets cost 28.50 per person, and they have 183.25 to spend. Take the price per ticket times the number of people, plus the cost for parking, and that equals the total amount to spend. 28.5x + 12.25 = 183.25 {$ per ticket times people,x, plus parking equals total amount} 28.5x = 171 {subtracted 12.25 from each side} x = 6 {divided each side by 28.5} 6 people can go to the park Ask Algebra House
