Question

Mr. Killian is buying tickets for a school field trip. He buys 80 student tickets, and 15 adult tickets. The cost of a ticket for a student is $8 less than the cost of an adult ticket. He pays an additional charge of$14.75 in taxes and fees. If his total bill comes to \$405, choose equation Mr. Killian can use to determine the cost of an adult ticket, x and solve it.

95x – 8 + 14.75 = 405

95(x – 8) + 14.75 = 405

15x + 80(x-8) + 14.75 = 405

2(x-8) + 80x + 14.75 = 405
