Math at the Movies
Hannah went to the movies and found the following real-life application:
The first picture is prices for tickets, the second is for popcorn prices. Ifapeople buy tickets for a 3-D matinee showing of a movie they pay $12.50 each. If people buyblarge bags of popcorn they pay $8.00 for each. An equation for if some people got popcorn and a 3-D matinee would be 12.50a+ 8b= total price.
