    x = activity cardholders
    y = non-cardhoolders

    x + y = 654 tickets
    1.50x + 2.00y = 1171.50

    x = 654 - y

    1.50(654-y) + 2.00y = 1171.50
    981 - 1.50y + 2.00y = 1171.50
    981 + .50y = 1171.50
    .50y = 190.5
    y = 381

    x + 381 = 654
    x = 273

    273 activity cardholders
    381 non-cardholders

    273(1.50) + 381(2.00) = 1171.50
    409.50 + 762 = 1171.50
    1171.5 = 1171.50
