The drama club raised a total of $1,123.50 selling

tickets to its production of Othello. Tickets cost $4.50

for adults and $2.00 for students. Three times as

many student tickets were sold as adult tickets.

Which system of equations can be used to find a, the

number of adult tickets sold, and s, the number of

student tickets sold?

a = The number of adult tickets sold.

s = 3a = the # of student tickets sold.

4.5a + 3a*2.0 = 1123.50.

10.5a = 1123.50,

a = 107.

s = 3a = 3*107 = 321.
