**drwls**, Tuesday, November 17, 2009 at 10:03amAre you learning algebra? Both of these questions are of the same type: two equations in two unknowns.

In the first problem, let S be the number of student tickets and G be the number of General Admisison tickets.

S = 450 - G

4(450-G) + 6G = 2340

2G = 2340 - 1800 = 540

G = 270

S = 450 - G = 180

Do the other one the same way.
