The St. Mark's Community Barbecue served 250 dinners. A child's plate cost $3.50 and an adult's plate cost $7.00. A total of $1347.50 was collected. How many of each type of plate was served? Is the answer 125 for child and 125 for adult is this correct?

  • ALGEBRA 1 A -

    250=C+A
    3.5C+7A=1347.50
    3.5(250-A)+7A=
    3.5A=472.5
    A= 135
