One evening 1500 concert tickets were sold for the Fairmont Summer Jazz Festival. Tickets
cost \$25 for covered pavilion seats and \$20 for lawn seats. Total receipts were \$35,000. How
many of each type of tickets were sold?

Let x equal the number of pavilion seats sold.
Let y equal the number of lawn seats sold.

Complete the system of equations.

x + y =
number of pavilions seats (x) + number of lawn seats (y) = \$35,000

• algebra -

number of pavilions seats(x) = x
number of lawn seats(y) =( 1500 - x)

number of pavilions seats (x) number of lawn seats (y) = \$35,000
\$25x \$20(1500 - x) = \$35,000

Hope you can go on from here.
