You have $100 to buy SEA games tickets for your family of 4 persons.

You have $100 to buy SEA games tickets for your family of 4 persons.
If the price of one ticket is $ t , then the total cost for 4 persons is  $ 4t   What are the possible values of t  ?  We know that the maximum value of 4t  must not exceed $100. How do we write down this condition or inequality ?                                                                 How do you solve for t  ? Dividing both sides by 4 we get              So this means that each ticket should cost $25 or less. As long as each ticket is less than or equal to $25, you can buy enough tickets for your family of 4 !
