the mason family went to the amusement park. they spent 56.00$ on tickets. if adults cost 12$ and kids cost 5$ how many adults and children went to the park?

  • math -

    assuming there is one mom and one dad, let the number of kids be x

    2(12) + 5x = 56
    5x = 32
    x = 32/5 , well, that's no good

    let the number of adults be x, number of kids be y
    12x + 5y = 56
    looking for integer solutions,
    let y = 4
    12x + 20 = 56
    x = 3

    3 adults, and 4 kids
