Beth & her grandmother paid \$23 tickets to a play. An adult ticket costs \$6.50 more than a child's ticket. What was the cost of Beth's ticket?

I see \$8.25 as Beth's ticket and
\$14.75 as grandma's ticket.

check: 14.75+8.25 = 23
14.75-8.25 = 6.5

I don't know if grade 5 can handle

x + x+6.5 = 23, can they?

thanks Reiny! this really helps!

14.75 IS GRANDMAS AND 8.25 IS BETHS

14.75
