J.F. Antona How to translate word problems into algebraic expresions

Reading word problems and translate them into algebra terms) Rules: 1.- Read the problem 1.- Read the problem 2.- Read the problem 2.- Read the problem 3.- Read only the questions and set x and y and write what they are 3.- Read only the questions and set x and y and write what they are 4.-Read only one sentence and establish the equation (go to the next sentence and do the same…) 4.-Read only one sentence and establish the equation (go to the next sentence and do the same…) 5.-Solve the problem. 5.-Solve the problem.

1.- A word problem Tickets at a football match cost \$8, \$15 or \$20 each. The number of \$15 tickets sold was double the number or \$8 tickets sold. 6000 more \$20 \$20 tickets were sold than \$15 tickets. If the total gate receipts were \$783000, how many of each type of ticket was sold? X= number of \$8 tickets Y= number of \$15 tickets Z= number of \$20 tickets Y = 2X Z= 6000 + Y 8X+15Y+20Z=783000 1.- Read the problem 2.- Read the problem 3.- Read only the questions and set x and y and write what they are 4.-Read only one sentence and establish the equation (go to the next sentence and do the same…) 5.-Solve the problem (but that is another question). THE END for this moment. (REPEAT THE PRESENTATION IF YOU NEED IT)
