The Kennedy Pep Club rented a bus to take all of its members to a baseball game. The cost per person was to be $18.00. However, those making the trip had to pay $24.00 each because 10 members cancelled at the last minute. How many pep club members took the bus to the game?

Hi David,

The 10 cancellations left the club 10x$18.00 = $180.00 short. This was spead evenly among the members who were left and it cost each of them an additional sum of $6.00 each. How many people need to pay $6.00 each to get a total of $180.00?
