Guest   Posts: n/a mathematics. help.? a chess club, consisting of 4 persons, decided to go to a broadway show all together. they are told that tuesday night each ticket will cost \$21. however on saturday night each will cost \$35. how much will the club save by going on tuesday night rather than going on saturday night?
 07-30-2007 #2 Icobes Guest   Posts: n/a Alright, so let's start this problem:Let us first calculuate how much they must pay on Tuesday night. There are four people and they each must pay \$21 to go to the show on a Tuesday night.We can calculate the total cost by doing \$21 x 4 which is \$84. Therefore they will spend \$84 on Tuesday.Let us now calculate how much they will spend on Friday:It costs \$35 for each peron on a Friday and since therer are four of them the total can be calculated by doing \$35 x 4 which is \$140. Therefore they will spend a total of \$140 if they go on Friday.The question asks how much they will save, well that is the difference between the price on Tuesday and Friday:\$140 - \$85 = \$56Therefore they will save \$56 if they go on Saturday.Hope I helped
 07-30-2007 #3 Poochie Guest   Posts: n/a The answer is \$56 because you multiply the prices by 4 and subtract Tuesdays from Saturdays. -Ex. (35*4)-(21*4) = 140-84 = \$56
 07-30-2007 #4 ewan_jrj777 Guest   Posts: n/a so when they go on saturday it will cost them:4*\$35 = \$140but in tuesday night:4*\$21= \$84So from subtracting 84 from 140, they can save \$56..hope that'll help
