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 don't know how to do this without knowing how many days they are staying at the hotel? or can i still do this problem?

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

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    so 65.00 + r/6 + $160.00

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    You haven't written an equation.

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    65.00 + r/6 + $160.00

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    An equation needs an equal sign.

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    65.00 + r/6 = $160.00

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    That answer doesn't make any sense.

    In your equation r = 15.83

    You need to find the total cost of the reunion party.

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    $160.00 /6 = x

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    Nope!

    Each family pays $160. Of that amount, $65 is for the hotel room.

    6(160 - 65) = t

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    t = 570.00

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    Right. Doesn't that make sense?

  • algeBRA WORD PROBLEM -

    6(160-65)=p
    160-65= 95
    6(95)=p
    p= $570
