The price of movie tickets is lower in the US compared to Japan and Switzerland.
Let the price of movie tickets in Japan be J and that in Switzerland be S. It costs $78.52 to buy three tickets in Japan plus two tickets in Switzerland.
This gives 3J + 2S = 78.52 ...(1)
Three tickets in Switzerland plus two tickets in Japan cost $75.13. This gives:
3S + 2J = 75.13 ...(2)
Solve (1) and (2) for S and J.
2*(1) - 3*(2)
=> 6J + 4S - 9S - 6J = -68.35
=> -5S = -68.35
=> S = 13.67
J = 17.06
The tickets cost $17.06 in Japan and $13.67 in Switzerland.
