Task# Ticket Booth

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

1 The goal of this task is to compare unit rates in a real world context. Some of the numbers, for example 12 tickets for $5, do not give a whole number of cents per ticket. There are, however, good methods to compare this rate to the other rates without actually calculating the unit rate. In addition to solving the problem by finding unit rates, students could also make a ratio table.
