Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Basically it asks the cost in terms of number of ride 

 the first ride is include in the get in ticket, so the cost (C(n)) in terms of number of rides n is

C(n) = 10+2.5*(n-1)   


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

so my brother is telling me his teacher said there are 12 rides so would 12 be "n"?

he put down 10+2.50(12-1)= 37.50

should we add something or not include something?
