Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Let # of Children=C, # of Adults=A So since total # of people=45, hence C+A=45 Also # of children= twice the # of adults Hence C=2A System of Equations i) C+A=45 ii) C=2A Now substitute ii) in i) to get the value of A and from that get the value of C
