**PsyDAG**, Thursday, January 28, 2010 at 10:36amLet x = adult's tickets and y = children's tickets

x + y = 77

Therefore, x = 77 - y

7x + 5y = 443

Substitute 77 - y for x in the second equation and solve for y. Put value into first equation to find x. Check by putting both into the second equation.

I hope this helps.
