## At the city museum, child admission is \$6.40 and adult admission is \$9.60. On Tuesday, 160 tickets were sold for a total sales of \$1305.60. How many adult tickets were sold that day? numbers of adult tickets

X = children

6.40x + 9.60y = 1305.60

x + y =160

x=160-y

6.40(160-y) + 9.60y = 1305.60

1024 + 6.40y +9.60y = 1305.60

1024 = 3.2y = 1305.60

3.2y = 281.6

Y = 281.6/3.2 = 88

So 88
adult tickets were sold

Double check now

X = 160-y

X=160-88 = 72

6.40 x 72 = 460.80

9.60 x 88 = 844.80

844.80 + 460.80 = 1305.60 this checks

88 + 72 = 160 this checks

## The function that represents the average cost per person, including transportation, to a museum is y= 25+8x/x Which statement is true about the graph of the function? The horizontal asymptote y = 0 means the cost approaches zero as the number of people increases. The horizontal asymptote y = 8 means the average cost approaches \$8 as the number of people increases. The vertical asymptote x = 0 means the cost approaches zero as the number of people increases. The vertical asymptote x = 8 means the cost approaches zero as the number of people increases.

The statement that is true about the graph of the function from the equation y = 25 + 8x/x which represents the average cost per person is “The horizontal asymptote y = 8 means the average cost approaches \$8 as the number of people increases.” It means that as x increases which represents the number of people, the value of the transportation to a museum averages to eight dollars.

## USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. Example 1. The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. Corrected version: The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II: coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. In Washington, D.C., we visited three museums in a single day the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Explanation:

The correct rewriting of the sentence will be –

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

The use of the comma right after Washington is wrong as it is the name of a single particular place so it should instead be written as Washington D. C.

Also, a semicolon has to be inserted in between day and the. Since the sentence lists a number of places, the use of a colon is necessary to show the list of the places visited.

So, the changes in the sentence are-

(a) remove the comma (,) in between Washington and D.

(b) put a colon (:) right next to the word “day”.
