**Reiny**, Monday, April 29, 2013 at 9:23pmstudent tickets ---- x

adult tickets ------- x+100

children tickets ---- 2000 -x - (x+100) = 1900-2x

5(1900-2x) + 10x + 12(x+100) = 19700

9500 - 10x + 10x + 12x + 1200 = 19700

12x = 9000

x =**750 student tickets**

x+100 = 850 adult tickets

leaving 400 children tickets

check:

5(400) + 10(750) + 12(850) = 19700
