Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let the number of child ticket be x. so number of adult ticket=38x so x*2 + (38x)*6 = 148 solve for x that will give you no of child tickets sold.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because 20 times 2 is 40 and 18 times 6 is 108 so you add them and get 148
