Hi JaCayla

Valeria has a points card for a movie theater.

- She receives 80 rewards points just for signing up.
- She earns 7.5 points for each visit to the movie theater.
- She needs 185 points for a free movie ticket.

There isn't a question asked here. So I'm guessing it's how many times does Valeria need to go to the movie theater to get a free ticket.

Here is the information given

- 80 points for signing up
- 7.5 points per visit
- 185 total needed for free ticket.

To determine how many times Valerie needs to go the theater we'd use the following

Her total points would be equal to 1) Her sign up fee and 2) The points per visit times the number of visits.

- Let v= the number of visits.
- Sign up fee + (Points / visit) x visit

80 + (7.5 points/visit) • (v) = 185

7.5 v = 105

v = 14

It would take 14 visits to the theater to get a free movie.

Hope this helps :)
