Just substitute the numbers into your equation and see what works. For example, (A)if 6 children are going and there are 22 people, then there must be 16 adults. So, 16(16)+5(6)needs to equal 275. It doesn't, so it is not correct.

(B) 16(15)+5(7) if this equals 275, you have your answer. If that doesn't work you have to go ahead and do the rest. Good Luck!
