9 first class tickets

4 coach tickets

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x = number of first class tickets bought

Let y = number of coach tickets bought

Given:

• A total of 13 people took the trip

⇒ x + y = 13

Given:

• Total cost of first class tickets = \$1180
• Total cost of coach tickets = \$240
• Total budget = \$11,580

⇒ 1180x + 240y = 11580

Rewrite first equation to make y the subject:

⇒ y = 13 - x

Substitute this into the second equation and solve for x:

⇒ 240(13 - x) + 1180x = 11580

⇒ 3120 - 240x + 1180x = 11580

⇒ 940x = 8460

⇒ x = 9

Therefore, 9 first class tickets were bought.

To find the number of coach tickets bought, simply substitute the found value of x into equation 1 and solve for y:

⇒ 9 + y = 13

⇒ y = 4

Therefore, 4 coach tickets were bought.

781.54

Step-by-step explanation:

240+1180= 1420

11580-1420 = 10160

10160÷13 ~=~ 781.54
