For a field trip, a bus company charges a flat fee plus an additional fee per student. For 25 students, the total cost is $167.50. If there are 70 students, the total cost is $370.00. Write an equation that represents the total cost y of the field trip for x students. What would the total cost be if 110 students went on the field trip?
subtract second equation from first..
solve for costper kid, then go back and solve for flat.posted by bobpursley
