Suppose you’re having a birthday party at the local bowling alley.

1. You’re trying to figure out how many people you can afford to invite.
The number of guests you can invite to your party varies inversely with the price per bowler at the alley. Explain what this means using at least 2 sentences. (I did this already)

2. How much total money are you willing to spend to host this bowling party? (Pick a realistic number…not 2 billion dollars) 5,000

3. Research how much a bowling alley in your area charges per person. (Either use the internet or call)

_______________ per person

4. Set up an equation that shows the inverse relationship between the number of guests at your part and the price per bowler. (You will use your answer in #2 and 3 for part of this equation) Make x the number of bowlers you can invite.

5. Solve your equation for x to figure out how many people you can invite to your party. (Show all work for credit)

1. Did you find out what bowling alleys charge per person?

You want to spend \$5,000 on this bowling party? Try something realistic. \$150.00?

Suppose the bowling alley charges \$10.00 per person. Your equation is:

10 x X = 150

2. Glad you told me about the \$5,000 part. Thanks so much. I'm not good at solving equations, or do I use a calculator?
