1. The equation to determine how much george will pay for a student ticket is 1/3x + 15 = 19 and george pay \$12 for a student ticket.
Given:
George and his dad are planning to attend the state fair. an adult ticket is \$19. the price of an adult ticket is one third the price of a student ticket plus \$15.
Let x be the price of student ticket.
from the given statement:
1/3x + 15 = 19
x + 45 = 19*3
x + 45 = 57
x = 57 – 45
x = 12.
Therefore the equation to determine how much george will pay for a student ticket is 1/3x + 15 = 19 and george pay \$12 for a student ticket.
