1st Problem Solved: The Bus Rent

This the first of the series of relatively hard problems for MTAP contestants. The problem below is probably good from Grade 4 to Grade 6.

Problem

The fee for a single person in Rideon Bus company is P1500 for a Metro Manila tour. If a 50-seater bus is rented out, the price for each person is reduced by 20%.

 

How many persons are needed for it to be a better deal to rent out the bus?

Solution

For each person, the discount is P1500 x 0.2 = P300.

Therefore, each person must pay P1500 – P300 = P1200 if 50 persons were to ride the bus.

Now, the price of the entire bus if 50 persons go is 1200 x 50 = P60,000.

Dividing 60,000 by the original price, we have 60,000/1500 = 40.

Meaning, 40 persons need to pay P60,000 which is the same as the price of renting out the entire bus.

Correct Answer: 40 persons
