I'm not sure where to start on this question. Here's the scenario:
"You are hosting a convention for a charitable organization. You pay a rental fee of $22,900 for the convention center, plus you pay the caterer $14 for each person who attends the convention. Suppose you just want to break even."
The question I'm stuck on is:
(a) Use a formula to express the amount you should charge per ticket as a function of the number of people attending. (Let C be the amount charged per ticket (in dollars) and n the number of people attending.)
I know I can figure out the other parts (b-graph formula (a), c-find how many must attend if ticket price is $47). I'm just stuck on (a). Any help is appreciated!
Ok, so would it be:
Never mind, I got it. It was (22900/n)+14=C (thought that when you divide, you subtracted one from the numerator when dealing with variables)
Thank you for your help, HallsofIvy!
