Adult tickets for a play cost $19 and child tickets cost $17. If there were 36 people at a performance and the theatre collected $646 from ticket sales, how many children attended the play?

  • math - ,

    Let a = adults and c = children.

    a + c = 36 total attendance, then
    a = 36 - c

    19a + 17c = $646 total ticket sales

    Substitute (36-c) for a in the second equation and solve for c.

    I'll let you do the calculations.
