Game tickets for 1 adult and 2 kids is \$21. The adult ticket is \$3 more than the kid ticket.

How much does adult ticket cost?
How much does a child ticket cost?
Use a let statement. Write an equation.

(21-3) / 3 = x
18/3=x
X = \$6 (child ticket)

X + 3 = \$9 (adult ticket)

I know how to work it out, but not sure if I am writing the equation correctly
