    I have some hints in store. - The money that they spend will be the \(\textbf{sum}\) of the money they spend on children and adults. - The money that they spend on guys will be \(\text{number of guys} \times \text{money for 1 guy}\). - The inequality sign that you use is less than or equal to/\(\le\)

    x=number of adult tickets adult tickets cost $8 hence total amount in $ of adult tickets = $8x y=number of children tickets children tickets cost $6 hence total amount in $ of children tickets = $6y the total of these tickets if all are sold should be equal to or less that how much is on budget that the radio station wants to spend, aka $172. hence, 8x + 6y \(\le \) 172

    does the above logic make any sense?
