Q:
# An amusement park sells children and adult tickets at a ratio of 8:1. On Saturday, they sold 147 more children tickets than adults. How many tickets did the amusement park sell on Saturday

Accepted Solution

A:

The ratio of sold children tickets: sold adult tickets = 8:1

Let the number of sold children tickets be 8x, and the sold adult tickets be x

They sold 147 more children tickets than adults:

8x-147 = x

7x = 147

x = 21

The number of total sold tickets = the number of sold children tickets + the number of sold adult tickets = 8x+x = 9x = 9*21 = 189

The amusement park sold 189 tickets on Saturday.

Let the number of sold children tickets be 8x, and the sold adult tickets be x

They sold 147 more children tickets than adults:

8x-147 = x

7x = 147

x = 21

The number of total sold tickets = the number of sold children tickets + the number of sold adult tickets = 8x+x = 9x = 9*21 = 189

The amusement park sold 189 tickets on Saturday.
