    Answer:

    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
