A.2.17.2 What's the Deal?
- Katie Akesson
A recreation center is offering special prices on its pool passes and gym memberships for the summer. On the first day of the offering, a family paid $96 for 4 pool passes and 2 gym memberships. Later that day, an individual bought a pool pass for herself, a pool pass for a friend, and 1 gym membership. She paid $72. Write a system of equations that represents the relationships between pool passes, gym memberships, and the costs. Be sure to state what each variable represents.
Find the price of a pool pass and the price of a gym membership by solving the system algebraically.
Graph the equations in the system. Make 1-2 observations about your graphs.
