The money collected at a school basketball game was 2,265 from 543 paid admissions. If adult tickets sold at $5.00 each and student tickets sold for $3.50 each, how many tickets of each kind were sold?

    Ok, well you need a system of equations.

    5x+3.50y=2265

    x+y=543
    x=543-y

    5(543-y)+3.50y=2265

    solve for y and substitute in other equation to solve for x

    can you take it from here?
