120 people attended the baseball game. Adults cost \$6 and students cost \$4 to attend the game. The game raised \$600 from the attendance. How many students attended the game?

1. A + S=120
6A +4S = 600

Use substitution A= 120-S

6(120-S) + 4s = 600

720 -6S + 4S = 600
720 -2S = 600

Can you finish from here?

2. a = numbers of adults

s = number of students

120 people attended the baseball game mean:

a + s = 120

Adults cost \$6 and students cost \$4 to attend the game.

The game raised \$600 from the attendance mean:

a * &6 + s * \$4 = \$600

OR

6 a + 4 s = 600

Now you must solwe system:

a + s = 120

6 a + 4 s = 600

Try to solve this system.

The solutions are:

a = 60 , s = 60

Proof:

a + s = 60 + 60 = 120

6 a + 4 s = 6 * 60 + 4 * 60 = 360 + 240 = 600
