 Question 253014: Band A charges \$600 to play for the entire evening. Band B charges \$350 plus \$1.25 for each ticket sold. Find the number of ticket for which the cost of the two bands will be equal. A caterer charges a fixed cost for preparing dinner plus an additional cost for each person served. you know the cost for 100 students will be \$750 and the cost for 150 students will be \$1050. Find the caterer's fixed cost and the cost per student served. (I have the answer to these two questions, i just need help with one question.) ***Assume that a total of 200 students attend the dance, what would the cost per ticket be i would need to cover my expenses?*** Thank You!
