# What is the Price of an Adult’s Ticket? If

It costs Rs.17.50 for two adults and their child to attend the circus. If the child’s ticket is half the price of an adult’s ticket, what is the price of an adult’s ticket?

- Rs.7.00
- Rs.7.50
- Rs.6.75
- Rs.6.50

**Answer: (1) Rs.7.00**

**Explanation:-**

Let the cost of adults = Rs.X

The cost of two adults and their child = Rs.1750

According to the question,

X + X + X/2 = 17.50

(2 X + 2 X + X)/2 = 17.50

5 X = 17.50 x 2

X = 35/5

X = 7

The cost of an adult’s ticket = Rs.7

Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.7.00
