  • You can book it here for $30 and all the cake and celebrations will be depending on the number of people. It is also another extra $1 per person to buy the food and supplies for them.
  • It will be Jake's birthday tommorow. He wanted to have a big party with all of his friends. They did not have space for this in the apartment. So his dad went out to look for a place where they can host the party.
  • You can book it here for $20 and all the cake and celebrations will be depending on the number of people. It is also another extra $2 per person to buy the food and supplies for them.
  • His dad wandered the city and kept walking. He wanted to save as much money as possible but still give his son a good party.
  • That simplifies into 2 equations. 30 + x = ___ or 20 + 2x = ___ In this case x = 18 so you would get 2 new equations. They are 30 + 18 = or 20 + 36 = so the first one would be cheaper
  • I am worried because I do not know which is cheaper. One costs $30 and $2 extra per person which is 15 + 2 + 1 in my case. The other offers the rent for $20 and $3 extra per person which is 15 + 2 + 1 in my case.
