You are a member of a fund raising comittee for your school. The committee is sponsoring a fair. Each member of the committee has agreed to sell 50 tickets to the fair. Student tickets are $3 each and adult tickets are $5 each. Let t represent the number of student tickets that you sell. Write a simplified expressions in terms of t for the total amount of money you raise for sellng all 50 tickets.
Total number of tickets = 50
number of student tickets = t
number of adult tickets = 50-t
Total revenue, R = 3t + 5(50-t)
Simplify R to get the expression required.
