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.
