PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A humorous mathematical oversight in a New York Times article provides a great 'real life' linear systems application problem!

The problem involves the opening week rental and sales income from Sony's controversial movie 'The Interview'. The article claims that the number of rentals and sales is not known, but only the total profits from both, and the combined number of transactions... honestly, it's like they wrote the article for a math text book :)

INCLUDED
-Editable Word Document (.docx)
-Link to youtube video for brief background info about the controversy surrounding the movies release
-Student handout containing article excerpt and instructions, including 'Level 4' success criteria
-Complete solution key for substitution, elimination, or graphing methods.
