    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.
