x = 6

Work Step by Step

Because each ticket costs 167 dollars and has a 19 dollar insurance fee and an additional 16 dollar fee, we can create an equation to find the value of x. x is the number of tickets that were bought. Given that the total cost is 1132 16 is our constant fee. 19 is the insurance fee for each ticket. 167 price for each ticket. We can create the equation 167x +19x +16 = 1132 Combine like terms 186x + 16 =1132 Isolate x by subtracting 16 on both sides and dividing by 186 on both sides. x = 6.
