The number of students attending the fall play was 150 more than the number of adults attending. Students tickets cost $3, and adult tickets cost 45 . A total of $4730 was collected. How many students attended the play?

this is what i have, but i need help on the equation.

let x = students let y= adults

x=y+150

x=3x+5y+150

150*3=450, 4730-450=4280, 4280/2=2140

the # of students is 2140+150=2290

4730-150=4
