## Answers ( )

Answer:The price of season ticket last year was 1,840.Step-by-step explanation:Given:

Price of season tickets this year = 2024

Also given:

The Price of season tickets this year is 10% more than amount paid last year.

We need to find the Price of season tickets last year.

Solution:

Let the Price of season tickets last year be ‘x’.

Now we know that;

The Price of season tickets this year is 10% more than amount paid last year.so equation can be framed as;[tex]x+ \frac{10}{100}x=2024\\\\x+\frac{x}{10}=2024\\\\x+0.1x=2024\\\\1.1x=2024[/tex]

Now dividing both side by 1.1 we get;[tex]\frac{1.1x}{1.1}=\frac{2024}{1.1}\\\\x= 1840[/tex]

Hence The price of season ticket last year was 1,840.
