A church group goes to a diamondbacks baseball game. The tickets are $15 dollars per person. A tour of the stadium has a fee of $25. A collector’s pin is $3 per person. If the group spent $367 at the game, how many people went to the game?
x = number of people that went to the game {what is being asked}
When you are setting this up, understand the tour cost is for the whole group, not each person. The expenses for each person are the tickets and the collector’s pins. 15x + 3x + 25 = 367 {$15 for each ticket, $3 for each pin, $25 for the group tour} 18x + 25 = 367 {combined like terms} 18x = 342 {subtracted 25 from each side} x = 19 {divided each side by 18} 19 people went to the game Ask Algebra House
