 Question 138128: I have a couple of questions.They are word problems dealing with planning for a dance and keeping the ticket price low. 1. Band A charges \$600 to play for the evening. Band B charges \$350 plus \$1.25 for each ticket sold. Write a linear equation for the cost of each band. Also find the number of tickets for which the cost of the two bands will be equal. 2. A caterer charges a fixed cost for preparing dinner plus a cost for each person served. You know that the cost for 100 people will be\$750 and the cost for 150 people will be \$ 1050. Find the caterer's fixed cost and the cost per person served. 3.From the information above , assume that 200 people will come to the dance. Which band would you choose and the cost per ticket that you need to charge to cover expenses? Please, please HELP!!! Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15745)
