Solution

## The correct option is D 8The amount she would spend would be equal to the sum of the entry charges and the cost of playing the games. Let the number of games she can play be represented by x. Cost of each game = 5 dollars Thus, the cost of the total number of games she can play = 5×x = 5x Entry cost for the arena = 10 dollars Thus, total amount = Entry cost + Cost of games she can play Substituting the values, we can frame the equation as: 50=10+5x ⇒50–105=x ⇒405=8=x Hence, she can play 8 games.
