Paris Metro Tickets (known locally as Ticket t+) are currently priced at 2.10€ for a single ticket ( as of Jan. 1, 2023). A package of 10 tickets, a carnet [“car-nay”] costs 19.10€ (paper tickets) or 16.90€ if put on Navigo Easy.
Paris Metro tickets are white color paper tickets, currently the single-use/ride Paris Metro tickets, known officially as Ticket t+.
Update: These paper coupon-style tickets are gradually being phased out with the introduction of Navigo Easy, a preloaded Paris travel card for visitors and residents and Navigo Liberté+, a monthly billed pay-per-use card for residents. Sale of paper Paris Metro tickets like the one pictured above will continue until end of 2025 when sales are scheduled to stop.
