Central middle school sold 50 tickets for one night at the school play. Student tickets sold for 2\$ each and adult tickets sold for 3\$ each. They took in 135\$. How many of each type of ticket did they sell?

• Math -

X = Student tickets sold.

Eq1: x + y = 50 Tickets.
Eq2: 2x + 3y = \$135.
Multiply Eq1 by -2 and add the Eqs:
-2x - 2y = -100
2x + 3y = 135
Sum: Y = 35

In Eq1, replace Y with 35:
x + 35 = 50
X = 15
