If x is the total charge of all the tickets without any fees, we can create the equation:

1.15x = 2,294.25

x = 2,294.25/1.15 = 1995

So the driver was charged $1995 without any fees, and therefore,the driver was issued 1995 / 133 = 15 tickets.

Answer: E

Given: The fine for a driver riding in the carpool lane without any passengers is $133. A driver is issued a bench warrant for $2,294.25, which includes a 15% fee for late charges and court costs.

Asked: How many tickets has the driver not paid?

Total fine paid for 1 passenger (1 ticket) = $133*1.15
Total fine paid for all passengers (tickets) = $2294.25

Number of tickets \(= \frac{$2294.25}{$133*1.15} = 15\)
IMO E
