If I sale fifty tickets and kids tickets are three dollars and adults tickets are five dollars I got 180 dollars in total how many tickets both adults and kids have in all if I sold fifty tickets

  • Math -

    Sold X kids tickets.
    Sold (50-X) Adult tickets.

    3x + 5(50-X) = $160.
    3x + 250-5x = 160
    -2x = 160-250 = -90
    X = 45 kids Tickets.
    50-x = 50-45 = 5 Adult Tickets.

  • Math -

    Correction: Total monies should be $180.
    Not 160. Recalculate.
