This document includes two different scenarios that can be modeled and solved with systems of linear equations.
1) Students are given pricing info for two different car rental companies and must:
write the linear equations
make tables for each equation
analyze what the solution (the point of intersection) represents
answer questions like "which company is cheaper if you're driving 18 miles?"
2) Students are given information about the price of child and adult tickets for a puppet show, along with how much was spent on tickets. They must select the correct system of equations and then solve it, showing all work.
