1. The top band in the state charges , where is the total number      of attendees at the concert. The venue charges \$70 per ticket. After how      many people buy tickets does the venue break even, and what is the value      of the total tickets sold at that point?

For the following exercises, use a system of linear equations with two variables and two equations to solve.

1. The startup cost for a boutique      is \$15,000, and each floral arrangement costs \$17 for the boutique to      make. If each arrangement is then sold for \$25, after how many      arrangements does the boutique break even?
2. If a scientist mixed 15% saline      solution with 48% saline solution to get 20 gallons of 35% saline      solution, how many gallons of 15% and 48% solutions were mixed? Round each      to the nearest whole gallon.
3. Admission into an amusement park      for 4 children and 2 adults is \$133.50. For 6 children and 4 adults, the      admission is \$235.50. Assuming a different price for children and adults,      what is the price of the child ticket and the price of the adult ticket?

2. The top three countries in oil      consumption in a certain year are as follows: the United States, China,      and Japan. In millions of barrels per day, the three top countries      consumed 32.2 million barrels of the world’s oil. The United States      consumes 12 million more barrels a day than China. China consumes 3.2      million barrels a day than Japan. How many barrels of the world oil      consumption did the United States, Japan, and China consume?
