The attendance at a baseball game was 400 people. Student tickets cost $2 and adult tickets cost $3. ( Man those are some cheap tickets.) Total ticket sales were $1050. How many tickets of each type were sold?

DIRECTIONS- Write an equation to model this situation.


This was assigned for homework, and I DO NOT GET IT. AT ALL.

Plz help. Plz.

    Let s - # of student tickets.
    Let a = # of adult tickets.
    s + a = 400
    2s + 3a = 1050
    Double the first equation
    2s + 2a = 800
    Subtract that from the second equation
    a = 250

    Use either of the first two equations to solve for s.
