Answer: 16 attractions

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

Answer: 17

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
