Tickets for a play at the community theater cost $4 for an adult and $2 for a child. If 250 tickets were sold and the total receipts were $740, how many of each type of ticket were sold?
Let x = number of tickets (adult)
Let (250 - x) = number of tickets (child)
Setting up the equation:
4x + 2(250 - x) = 740
Solve for x. Don't forget to include both types of tickets!

4x=740-500 cancellation, divide
4x=240 divide 240 by 4
x=60 ans. then substitute x value to neither equation and solve for y.
