Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the number of attractions that he can visit at the park.

Ron plans on visiting an amusement park this weekend. Admission to the park costs \$13.00, and each attraction costs \$2.96 to use. This means that the expression for the total cost of visiting x attractions is

2.96x + 13

If Ron has saved \$62.00 for this weekend, then

2.96x + 13 = 62

2.96x = 62 – 13

2.96x = 49

x = 49/2.96

x = 16.55

Since the number cannot be a fraction, the highest number of attractions he can visit at the park is 16

Step-by-step explanation:

Cost on admission to the park =\$13

Total savings over the weekend = \$62

Cost for each attraction =\$2.96

Amount left for attraction =\$62-\$13

\$49

Highest number of attractions=\$49/\$2.96

16.55: 17
