Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:29 minutesStep-by-step explanation:Given[tex]Total = \$43.25[/tex][tex]Entrance\ Fee = \$7[/tex][tex]Per\ Minute = \$1.25[/tex]RequiredDetermine the number of minutes (t) that he was on the trampoline.This can be expressed as:[tex]Total\ Payment = Entrance\ Fee + Amount\ per\ minute * t[/tex]Where t represents the number of minutesSubstitute values for Total, Entrance Fee and Amount per minute[tex]43.25 = 7 + 1.25 * t[/tex][tex]43.25 = 7 + 1.25t[/tex]Solving further to get the value of t, we have:[tex]1.25t = 43.25 - 7[/tex][tex]1.25t = 36.25[/tex][tex]t = 36.25/1.25[/tex][tex]t = 29[/tex]
