Lesson 3: Identifying proportional relationships

Proportional relationships: movie tickets

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

• 😡😡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.😡😡
• 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.
• The first time I watched I watched it to learn,
The second was spent eating pop-corn.

And no, I'm not kidding.

• for example, if for 1 ticket the price is 10 rupees, for 2 tickets it should be 20 rupees and for 3 tickets it should be 30 because 2 is 1*2 and so for 10 also we should multiply by 2 which gives 20. That's how you see proportionality. (for 3 you should multiply 10*3 and for 4, 10*4 and so on)BTW not only when the price is 10. When its any number you should multiply 1*that number,2*that number, and so on
