At a showing where 210 tickets were sold the theater collected $1,355.00. Write a system of equations and determine the number of adult tickets sold and the number of child tickets sold.

Could you please show the work on how to do this?

Let

A = the number of adult tickets

C = the number of children tickets

Then,

A + C = 210 and

10A + 5C = 1355

Can you take it from here?
