  1. If you can't figure this out with an equation, try process of elimination.

    14 @ 6 = 84
    19 @ 15 = 285
    285 + 84 = 369
    Nope, the first one is not correct.

  2. If you need an equation.
    let A = # adults
    and C = # children
    ====================
    number of attendees = 33; therefore,
    A + C = 33
    And cost of tickets was total of $360; therefore,
    15*A + 6*C = 360
    Solve the two equatins for A and C.
