The P.T.O. plans to have a pancake breakfast to raise money for the fifth grade five day camping experience. The fifth grade has 58 students. The camp charges $8.00 per day per student. Also, every student paying the daily rate must pay a one time charge of $2.00 pool fee. The camp also offers a group package price of $410.00 for 10 campers and this fee includes the pool fee. Decide which would cost less the first rate or the special group rate.
Answers for Sheet # 29
58 x $40 = $2320 + 116 pool fee = $2436
5 groups of 10.
5 x $410 = $2050
8 students at individual rate
8 x $40 + 16 (pool fee) = $336
Total as a group = $2386
