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

  1. 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.
