If tickets are $.50 for children
$2.00 men
$3.00 women
Explain how 100 people can purchase tickets for $100. No money left over and at least 1 man, 1 woman, and 1 child included

  • 5th grade -

    Consider: 4 children - .5 x 4 = $2
    1 man - 1 x 2 = $2
    32 women - 32 x 3 = $96
    total = $100

    That's still not 100 people. Thanks though

  • 5th grade -

    .50=child
    2.00=man
    3.00=woman

    70 children=$35
    25 men= $50
    5 women=$15

    I used guess and check..it took a little while, but I got it. It was kind of fun lol. I'm not sure if there's only one answer but this one works.
