The money collected at a school basketball game was 2,265 from 543 paid admissions. If adult tickets sold at $5.00 each and student tickets sold for $3.50 each, how many tickets of each kind were sold?

Ok, well you need a system of equations.
5x+3.50y=2265
x+y=543
x=543y
5(543y)+3.50y=2265
solve for y and substitute in other equation to solve for x
can you take it from here?
