Homework Help: math

Posted by vet on Sunday, July 22, 2007 at 10:14pm.

Tickets for a concert sold for $11 and $8. If 600 tickets were sold for one evening and the receipts were $5500, how many of each were sold?

Let the number of $11 tickets be x, then the number of $8 tickets would be 600-x

Now we consider the cost of these tickets and we get this equation:

11x + 8(600-x) = 5500

I trust you can finish it from here.

(Actually, I got x to be 233.333.. but x is the number of tickets, which should be a whole number.
So either you made a typing error or the question is bogus)
