    The attendance at a baseball game was 400 people. Student tickets cost $2 and adult tickets cost $3. Total ticket sales were $1050. How many tickets of each type were sold?

    1--S + A = 400

    2--2S + 3A = 1050

    3--2 x (1) yields 2S + 2A = 800

    4--Subtract (3) from (2) yieldingA = 250

    5--It follows that S = 150
