Answer:

245x+45=1515

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :Joan is buying airline tickets for her family. Each airline ticket costs $232 with a baggage fee of $13. The airline charges a booking fee of $45 for the entire set of tickets. Joan spent a total of $1,515.

To Find:If x represents the number of tickets, which equation can be used to find the value of x?

solution:

Since each ticket costs $232 with a baggage fee of $13.

So, cost of 1 ticket is 232+13=245

Cost of x tickets = 245x

The airline charges a booking fee of $45 for the entire set of tickets.

So, total cost will be 245x+45

We are also given that Joan spent a total of $1,515.

⇒245x+45=1515

Thus the above equation can be used to find the value of x
