Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The admission cost of each adult is $11.5 and that of each children is $6.5.Step-by-step explanation:Let the admission cost for children to the museum is $x. So, the admission cost for adults to the museum is $(x + 5) {As per given condition} Now, given that admission to the museum for Barbara and Jeff Johnson and their five children cost fifty-five dollars and fifty cents. Hence, 2(x + 5) + 5x = 55.5 ⇒ 7x = 45.5 ⇒ x = $6.5  So, $(x + 5) = $11.5 Therefore, the admission cost of each adult is $11.5 and that of each children is $6.5. (Answer)
