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.
