  1. Using the inverse of a Matrix:

    Let ‘a’ be adults and ‘c’ be children
    a + b = 1000
    16 a + 8b = 12,800

    1 1 1000 -16 R1 (R2) 1 1 1000 R2 / 8
    16 8 12800 0 -8 -3200

    1 1 1000 -1 R2 + R1 1 0 600
    0 1 400 0 1 400

    Therefore, there were 600 adults and 400 children on Saturday.

    SUNDAY

    a + b = 800
    16a + 8 b = 9600

    1 1 1000 -16 R1 (R2) 1 1 1000 R2 / 8
    16 8 12800 0 -8 -3200

    1 1 1000 -1 R2 + R1 1 0 400
    0 1 400 0 1 400

    Therefore there were 400 adults and 400 children on Saturday.
