Tickets to a sporting event cost $6 for children and $8 for adults. The total revenue from the tickets sold was $2340. There were 320 total tickets sold.

How many children’s tickets were sold?

  • algebra -

    c + a = 320

    6c + 8a = 2340

    8c + 8a = 8(320)

    2c = 8(320) - 2340

  • algebra -

    110 children's tickets were sold and 210 adult tickets were sold. Using the first 2 equations set up by Scott & ignoring the last 2 steps, I used substitution to solve for c "the number of children's tickets sold.

    6c+8(320-c)=320

    6c+2560-8c=320

    -2c+2560=320

    -2c=-220

    c=110
