Mustafa’s soccer team is planning a school dance as a fundraiser. The DJ charges $200 and decorations cost $100. The team decides to charge each student $5.00 to attend the dance. If n represents the number of students attending the dance, which equation can be used to find the number of students needed to make $1,500 in profit?
5n – 300 = 1,500
5n + 300 = 1,500
5n – 200 + 100n = 1,500
5n – 100 – 200n = 1,500

Given: DJ charge = $200 Decorations = $100 Total money spent = $200 + $100 = $300 Charge for each student = $5 Now, Profit = Total money earned - Total money spent 1500 = 2n - 300 So, 1500 = 2n - 300 can be used to find the total number of students needed to make a profit of $1500
