The Jurassic Zoo charges $28.00 for each adult admission and $12.00 for each child. The total bill for 454 people from a school trip was $3860.00. How many adults and how many children went to the zoo?

this is what I have so far

a+c=454

28(454-c)+12c=3860

**Reiny**, Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 5:51pmyour equation is correct according to your information, but the solution for c obviously has to be a positive whole number

I get c = 553.25

besides having a "partial child" there would then have be a negative number of adults.

(with the 454 being all children would already cost $5448)

Check your typing or read the question again.
