a + c = 610, therefore c = 610 - a

3a + c = 1250

Substitute 610-a for c in second equation and solve for a. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for c. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

290 children---- 290X 1.00= 290

320 adults ----- 320X 3.oo= 960

therefore 290+ 960= 1250
