Answer:

t = 100 + 15x

= 140 guests

Step-by-step explanation:

Rent for banquet room = $100

Dinner per guest = $15

Let

x = number of guests

Total cost = Rent for banquet room + (Dinner per guest * number of guests

Total cost, t = 100 + 15x

How many guests attend if the total cost of an event is $2200?

t = 100 + 15x

2,200 = 100 + 15x

2200 – 100 = 15x

2,100 = 15x

x = 2,100/15

x = 140 guests

x = number of guests = 140 guests
