Tickets for section A cost $a each

Tickets for Section B cost $b each

Johanna paid $105 for 5 section A tickets and 3 section B tickets.

Raiyah Paid $63 for 4 section A tickets and 1 section B ticket

Write 2 equations in a and b to represent the info.

1)5a+3b=105

2)4a+b=63

Is this correct?

And how do i calculate the values of a and b?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, June 27, 2009 at 5:05pmThe equations are correct.

To solve, I would multiply both sides of the second equation by 3, then subtract equation 2 from 1. The b terms will have subtracted out.
