Posted by on .

The attendance at a baseball game was 400 people. Student Ticket cost $2 and adult tickets cost were $3. Total Ticket Sales were $1050. How many tickets of each type were sold?

Ok, this is what I did:
2x+400=1050
-400=-400
-----------
2x=650
x=325

3y+400=1050
-400=-400
-----------
3y=650
y=216.6=217

I'm not sure if this is right? Can you please help me. Thanks.

    No.

    2x + 3(400-x)=1050

    X=-30

    I don't know how you came up with your original equations. You seem to be adding numbers of people (400) to dollars (1050) in the same equation. That is not allowed.

    If S is the number of students and A is the number of adults,
    S + A = 400
    2S + 3A =1050
    2S + 2A = 800
    Subtract the last equation from the one above. That will give you what A is. S is 400 -A

    Ok, I'm really confused. Where did you get 800? I don't really understand.

    Is it like this:

    2(S+A)=400
    2S+SA=800

    Is this right? If so, what do I do after this?

    how many adults were there?
