Beth & her grandmother paid $23 tickets to a play. An adult ticket costs $6.50 more than a child's ticket. What was the cost of Beth's ticket?

I see $8.25 as Beth's ticket and
$14.75 as grandma's ticket.
check: 14.75+8.25 = 23
14.75-8.25 = 6.5
I don't know if grade 5 can handle
x + x+6.5 = 23, can they?
