The parking fee paid by each friend    = \$5

Step-by-step explanation:

The given question here seems INCOMPLETE.

Emily and a friend bought two tickets to see a soccer game. Each ticket cost \$8.75. The friends paid a total of \$27.50, which included a fee per ticket for parking near the stadium.

a) How much did each friend pay for the parking fee?

Now, here the cost of each ticket = \$8.75

SO, the cost of 2 tickets = 2 x ( Cost of 1 ticket)  = 2 x (\$8.75)  = \$17.5

Let us assume the parking fee paid in total   = \$ a

Now, total amount paid by both friends =  \$27.50

The cost of 2 tickets +  Parking Fee =  \$27.50

or, \$17.50 + a = \$27.50

⇒ a =  27.50 – 17 .50 =  10

or, a  = 10

Hence, the total cost of parking fee = a = \$10

So the parking fee paid by each friend  = \$10 / 2  = \$5
