six familys split the cost of a family reunion. each family also spends $65 for a hotel room. Each familys share of the cost of the party plus the cost of the hotel room totlas $160. write and solve and equation to find the cost of the reunion.

I think you have to assume that each family stays at the motel just one night.

so 65.00 + r/6 + $160.00

You haven't written an equation.

65.00 + r/6 + $160.00

An equation needs an equal sign.

65.00 + r/6 = $160.00

That answer doesn't make any sense.
In your equation r = 15.83
You need to find the total cost of the reunion party.

$160.00 /6 = x

algeBRA WORD PROBLEM  Ms. Sue, Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 10:14pm
Nope!
Each family pays $160. Of that amount, $65 is for the hotel room.
6(160  65) = t

algeBRA WORD PROBLEM  marko, Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 10:18pm
t = 570.00

Right. Doesn't that make sense?

6(16065)=p
16065= 95
6(95)=p
p= $570
