## Answers ( )

10% of 5270 = $527

5% of 5270 = $263.50

1% of 5270 = $52.70

6% of 5270= $316.20

16% of 5270 = $843.20

$843.20 + $5270 = $6113.20

^ answer

sorry if it’s long lol i wanted to break it down as much as possible

ANSWER:

$6113.20

EXPLANATION:

There is two ways to make an expression to solve this which is

y = 1.16x

or

y = x + 0.16x

Here is the explanation for the first expression, it is more thorough:

The airline makes her pay x amount in dollars for the ticket alone. Then, the airline charges an additional 16% of that x amount. Just a policy they’ve required.

Therefore:

y = x + 0.16x

• x is the ticket price

• 0.16x is 16% of that ticket price

Plug x with the initial charge amount:

y = 5270 + 0.16(5270)

y = 6113.20
