## Homework Statement

A group can charter a particular aircraft at a fixed total cost. If 36 people charter the aircraft rather than 40 people, then the cost per person is greater by 12$

a) What is the fixed total cost to charter the aircraft?

b) What is the cost per person if 40 people charter the aircraft?

## Homework Equations

ThirtySixCost = 36 * (costPerPerson + 12)

FixedCost = NumberofPersons * costPerPerson (Note if NumberofPersons>40)

Not sure about the correctness of equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know how to solve it because data is incomplete.

ThirtySixCost=?

FortyCost=?

Somebody please guide me how to solve it.
