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!
