HELP!!!
I don't understand the question and need an asnwer fast!

Two different memberships are available at a discount department store. The Type A membership costs \$200 and allows you to enter the store and take 75% off the marked price. The Type B membership costs \$50 and allows you to enter the store and pay 62.5% of the marked price.

Type A membership: c = 0.25p + \$200
Type B membership: c = 0.625p + \$50

How many dollars worth of merchandise would a person have to buy for the cost of the Type A membership to equal the cost of the Type B membership?

When A = B,
0.25p + 200 = 0.625p + 50,
0.25p - 0.625p = 50 - 200,
-0.375p = -150,
P = \$400.

The booster club sold tickets to a high school basketball game. They sold 700 student tickets and 500 general admission tickets, and raised a total of \$5000. The combined cost of one student ticket and one general admission ticket was \$8.

The equations and graph below can be used to determine how much each ticket type cost, where s represents the cost of one student ticket and g represents the cost of one general admission ticket.

Total ticket sales: 700s + 500g = \$5000
Total cost for one student and one general admission ticket: s + g = 8

What was the price, in dollars, of a general admission ticket?
