tickets to a museum cost \$5 for general admission and \$2 with student ID. On Friday night 200 tickets were sold for \$625. How many general admissions tickets were sold.

• algebra -

G + S = 200 Therefore:

G = 200 - S

5G + 2S = 625

Substitute 200-S for G in second equation and solve for S. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for G. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
