A movie theater manager wants to know how many adults and how many children pay admission to a particular movie. The theater charges $10.00 for adult tickets and $5.00 for child tickets. 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?
