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.

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.
