You rent a wedding venue for a cost of \$3200. The cost includes a catered lunch for 50 guests. For each additional guest, though, the catered lunch costs \$32.

(c) The amount you have budgeted for the venue and catered lunch is \$5500. How many guests can you invite?

for 50 guests  cost is  \$3200.

let the number of unknown guests above 50 which to be invited be x

then,

\$3200 + 32 x = \$5500

32 x =   \$5500 - \$3200

32x  =  \$2300

x =  \$2300 / 32

x = 71.875

so  71.875 + 50(50 guests are included in \$3200) = 121.875  guest can be invited for  \$5500

so since amount is only \$5500 the number of guest should be less than 121.875

so

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.....thank you
