# Proportional relationships: movie tickets

When going to the movies, is the price you pay proportional to the number of tickets you buy?

• I was looking for a walk-through of this problem: an adult ticket cost \$2.50 and a child ticket cost \$1. if \$498.60 was collected for 100 tickets how many child tickets were sold? thank you!
• This is not even possible because even if you sold all adult tickets for 2.50 (maximum amount you could have), 100 tickets would be 250 dollars. Please check to make sure you have the correct numbers. Either have less money collected or more for each ticket.
• 😡😡Well... maybe I just won't go to the movies because my life earnings of ten cents won't pay a \$10.50 bill per ticket.😡😡

• So the popcorn price is just there to distract you?
• I think so. In some of my math problems in my advanced math class, my teacher puts confusing wording to get our minds working. You just have to think the problem through, and disect it, and then you won't be confused.
• why is the 5 dollars there if we dont use it?
