It cost 4 people $65 to each buy a movie ticket and a container of popcorn. Each container of popcorn cost $5.75. Let t represent the cost of a movie ticket. Which equation can be used to find the price of each movie ticket? A. 4(t + 5.75) = 65 B. 4(t – 5.75) = 65 C. 4t + 5.75 = 65 D. 4t – 5.75 = 65
5.75 would separate from each of the 4 people, so we can eliminate A and B, and since it's a part of the price, we can eliminate D and the correct answer is C.
