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+500-x=740

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.
