Much Ado about nothing.
adult ticket  x
child's ticket  x11
2x + 3(x11) = 174.45
2x + 3x  33 = 174.45
5x = 207.45
x = 41.49
Adult tickets cost $41.49
Child's ticket costs $30.49
That is all that is needed for the entire question.
No matter some students hate math, when they are confronted with such highfaluting language for a simple problem
