    it says the total tickets was 59 so you can write that as x + y = 59 agree?

    then, it says the total cost was 222.50 so... 2.50x + 4y = 222.50 because eachs tudent ticket is 2.5 worth and each adult ticket is 4 worth got it?

    so now use those two equations x + y = 59 2.5x + 4y = 222.5 solve for x
