At an amusement park, a group of children decided to ride the boomerang ride. It cost eight dollars for one ticket. The table shows how the total price of the tickets depends on the number of passengers. Find the missing values in the table.

We have a missing value for one passenger, four passengers, and six passengers. The question already told us that it cost eight dollars for one ticket. So if there is one passenger, the price of the ticket is eight dollars. From there, we need to think about how much it would cost for four passengers. If it cost eight dollars for every passenger and we have four passengers, we need to do multiplication.

We need to multiply eight times four to find out the cost of four passengers. Eight times four is 32. The total cost of four passengers would be 32 dollars. We can follow the same process if we had six passengers. It cost eight dollars per passenger. We have six passengers, need to do multiplication. Eight dollars times six equals 48. Six people could ride the ride for 48 dollars. And the missing values are eight, 32, 48.
