Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let x = student admission, and y= adult admission First sentence tells us that the total number of tickets is 1435 so.. x+y=1435 > equation 1 The next part tells us the price of each ticket and the total amount of money made so.. 1.50*x+5*y=3552.50 > Equation 2 Can you solve it from here?
