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.

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 $$= \frac{2294.25}{133*1.15} = 15$$
