The attendance at a baseball game was 400 people. Student tickets cost \$2 and adult tickets cost \$3. ( Man those are some cheap tickets.) Total ticket sales were \$1050. How many tickets of each type were sold?

DIRECTIONS- Write an equation to model this situation.

---------------------

This was assigned for homework, and I DO NOT GET IT. AT ALL.

Plz help. Plz.

• Algebra 1 -

Let s - # of student tickets.
Let a = # of adult tickets.
s + a = 400
2s + 3a = 1050
Double the first equation
2s + 2a = 800
Subtract that from the second equation
a = 250

Use either of the first two equations to solve for s.
