If tickets are $.50 for children

$2.00 men

$3.00 women

Explain how 100 people can purchase tickets for $100. No money left over and at least 1 man, 1 woman, and 1 child included

Consider: 4 children - .5 x 4 = $2

1 man - 1 x 2 = $2

32 women - 32 x 3 = $96

total = $100

.50=child

2.00=man

3.00=woman

70 children=$35

25 men= $50

5 women=$15

I used guess and check..it took a little while, but I got it. It was kind of fun lol. I'm not sure if there's only one answer but this one works.
