If I sale fifty tickets and kids tickets are three dollars and adults tickets are five dollars I got 180 dollars in total how many tickets both adults and kids have in all if I sold fifty tickets

Sold X kids tickets. Sold (50-X) Adult tickets. 3x + 5(50-X) = $160. 3x + 250-5x = 160 -2x = 160-250 = -90 X = 45 kids Tickets. 50-x = 50-45 = 5 Adult Tickets.

Correction: Total monies should be $180. Not 160. Recalculate.
