**Question description**

Last week, Kip went to the fair. It costs $4.55 to enter the fair and $1.00 per ticket. In the equation below, *x* represents the number of tickets Kip bought, and *y* represents the total amount Kip spent.

*y* = $1.00*x* + $4.55

If Kip spent $20.55 at the fair, how many tickets did he buy?
