  Question

# A charity is planning a concert  to raise money. There are 135 stall tickets and 70 deluxe tickets. The cost of deluxe tickets is 20 percent more than a stall ticket plus an additional 1.50$. The concert organizing committee expects to sell all the tickets and raise 2750$ from the ticket sales. Which of the following system of equations can be used to determine the price, s of each stall tickets and the price, d, of each deluxe ticket ?70d + 135s = 2750 ; d - 1.50s = 1.2070d + 135s = 2750 ; d - 1.20s= 1.50135s + 70d = 2750 ; d - 1.50s = 1.20135s + 70d = 2750 ; d - 1.20s = 1.50

Solution

## The correct option is D 135s + 70d = 2750 ; d - 1.20s = 1.50Step 1 : Underline the keywords A charity is planning a concert  to raise money. There are 135 stall tickets and 70 deluxe tickets.

Which of the following system of equations can be used to Step 2 : Recognize the variables : s and d Decipher the relation b/w the variables : 1. cost of deluxe tickets is 20 percent more than a stall ticket plus an additional 1.50$:d=1.20s+1.50 2. 135 stall tickets and 70 deluxe tickets. Also, committee expects to sell all the tickets and raise 2750$ from the ticket sales : 135 s + 70 d = 2750. Thus, the system of equation are 135 s + 70 d = 2750 and d = 1.20 s + 1.50. Rewriting, the second equation : d - 1.20 s = 1.50 Hence, option B is correct.  Suggest corrections
