# SystemOfEquationsProjectWithRelevantStudentProblems

```Problem Set and Answer Key
Blueface is going to open up for Kodak Black’s next concert on the Gulf Coast! Amar is trying to make some money by
selling Blueface and Kodak Black T-shirts outside the Coliseum. Each Kodak T-shirt sells for 20 dollars, and each Blueface
T-shirt sells for 15 dollars. Amar made 235 dollars and sold 14 T-shirts. How many Kodak Black shirts did he sell, and
how many Blueface T-shirts did he sell?
20 ( K ) + 15 ( B ) = 235
K + B = 14
K=5
B=9
KK and Caleb want to make the high school basketball gym, so they are going to join a gym over the summer. KK
decided to go to Planet Fitness, which costs \$30 to join, and \$5 per visit. Caleb decided to go to Club4Fitness, which just
charges \$8 per visit. After how many visits have KK and Caleb spent the same amount of money, and how much money
did they spend?
KK: d = 5 v + 30
Caleb: d = 8 v
V = 10
Ariana Grande is coming to North Gulfport Middle School for a fundraising benefit concert! Nevaeh is selling tickets.
This week, she sold 3 kids tickets and 9 adult tickets for a total of \$75. Last week, she sold 8 kids tickets and 5 adult
tickets for \$67. How much was each adult ticket, and how much was each kids ticket?
3 k + 9 a = 75
8 k + 5 a = 67
K=4
A=7

Title, Name, Word Problem
Variables Defined and Two (2) Equations
Graphing Method Solution: Graph must be labeled and numbered. If original equations are in standard form, they must be
re-written in slope-intercept form. (work must be shown). Both lines must be graphed correctly and the solution should be
identified as a coordinate point.
Substitution Method Solution: If both equations are in standard form, one must be rewritten so it has an isolated variable.
All steps of substitution must be shown in a neat and organized fashion (The original substitution to find the first variable,
then the second substitution to find the second variable).
Explanations for both the graphing and substitution method, stating what steps mathematically were taken.
Explanation of solution with regard to the context of the problem.
A paragraph explaining which method the student prefers when solving a system of equation.
