There were 409 tickets sold for a basketball game. The activity card holder's ticket cost $ 1.75, and the noncard holder's ticket cost $2.25. The total amount of money collected was $753.75. How many of each kind of tickets were sold?

number of activity holders  x
number of nonactivity holders  409x
1.75x + 2.25(409x) = 753.75
multiply by 100
175x + 225(409x) = 75375
take it from there
