Here's how: First, replace the cost of a family pass with our variable f. f equals half of $8 plus $25. Next, take out the dollar signs and replace words like plus and equals with operators. f = half of 8 + 25. Finally, translate the rest of the problem. Half of can be written as 1/2 times, or 1/2 ⋅ : f = 1/2 ⋅ 8 + 25.
