adult ticket --- x

child's ticket -- x-11

2x + 3(x-11) = 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
