posted by .

There are 155 people at the basketball game. Tickets for the game are $2.50 for students and $4 for adults. If the total ticket money received is $492.50 how many students and adults attended the game?

  • Substitution -

    A = 155 - S

    $2.50S + $4.00A = $492.50

    Substitute 115-S for A in the second equation and solve for S. Insert that value into the first equation to solve for A. Check by putting both values into the second equation.
