**Anonymous**, Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 10:14pmLet X =$ child tickets

X+20 =$ adult tickets

5(X+20) + 3X=2540

Solving for X will give you the amount in dollars sold for children tickets. Plugging the value that you obtain for X into X + 20 will give you the amount of money earned for selling adult tickets. Divide that amount from X + 20 by 5 to get the number of adult tickets sold.
