louis and his family are going to the zoo.the price of a bus ticket is$1.00,but the family has some coupons.if louis pays full price, and his wife pays 2/3 of the regular price,and the two children pay 1/2 of the regular price. how much will it cost for the family to take the bus?
Louis pays $1.00
Wife pays 2/3 of $1.00 = $.67
One child pays 1/2 of $1.00 = $.50.
The other child also pays $.50.
Add them up: $1.00 + $.67 + $.50 + $.50.
