hour. She has \$792 in savings. She is planning an
anniversary party for her parents. She would like to
invite 40 guests. The party will cost her \$1,520 for food
and drinks and \$150 for the photographer. She will also

1. Ima bit lazy. So do 2 for 1 to save time.

Shower budget Penny is planning a baby shower
for her daughter-in-law. The restaurant charges \$950
for up to 25 guests, plus \$31.95 for each additional
guest. How many guests can attend if Penny wants the
total cost to be no more than \$1,500?

I tried to solve this one just like how oobleck showed for the other problem. I was no where near the right answer. I know that 31.95x is give because we dont know how additional guest was going

2. cost for the party:
1529+150+7.50*40 = c
c-792 = m, the amount she still needs
m/60 = # hours to work to pay for it.

so, you need
950+31.95x <= 1500
31.95x <= 550
x <= 17.2
So she can only invite 17 additional guests...
So, where is your work? How do you know you're wrong?

3. You made a mistake. It's 1520 and not 1529
okay so the cost of the party is..
C=67100
67100-792 is M=66308
66308/60 is 1105 hours?
but the book says 42 guests
