Solutions

Verified

If the number of tickets bought is $x$,the price of each ticket is $167\$ and the travel insurance is $19\$,so total cost per ticket is $x(167+19)$ and after removing the fee the family charged $1116\$

\begin{aligned}x(167+19)&=1132-16\\186x&=1116\\\text{[Divide both sides by 186]}\\x&=6\\end{aligned}

So,the number of tickets bought is $6$
