Each child ticket for a ride costs \$3, while each adult ticket costs \$5. If the ride collected a total of \$115, and 33 tickets were sold, how many of each type of ticket were sold?
A. 8 child and 25 adult
B. 17 child and 16 adult
C. 156 child and 41 adult
D. 25 child and 8 adult

Easiest way, SAT tip of the day... Is to plug each answer in and see which works.

so 3c + 5a=115
and a+c=33
so if we plug in then 3*8 is 24 and 5*25 is 125 so that doent work so i just go on from their!
Thanks
