The records show that on a certain weekend, 1200 people took the cruise on saturady and 800 people took the cruise on sunday, The total receipte for saturday were $13,600 and the total receipts for sunday were $9,600. Determine how many adults and children took the cruise on saturday and sunday set up two systems o linear equations and use the inverse of the coefficient matrices to answwer the question

  • math - ,

    Using the inverse of a Matrix:

    Let ā€˜aā€™ be adults and ā€˜cā€™ be children
    a + b = 1000
    16 a + 8b = 12,800

    1 1 1000 -16 R1 (R2) 1 1 1000 R2 / 8
    16 8 12800 0 -8 -3200

    1 1 1000 -1 R2 + R1 1 0 600
    0 1 400 0 1 400



    Therefore, there were 600 adults and 400 children on Saturday.

    SUNDAY

    a + b = 800
    16a + 8 b = 9600

    1 1 1000 -16 R1 (R2) 1 1 1000 R2 / 8
    16 8 12800 0 -8 -3200

    1 1 1000 -1 R2 + R1 1 0 400
    0 1 400 0 1 400

    Therefore there were 400 adults and 400 children on Saturday.
