## kaylamalik_xo 3 years ago What two equations can be written from the information in this problem if "x" equals the number of tickets purchased early, and "y" equals the number of tickets purchased the day of the show? Tickets for a school play cost \$5 if you buy them early, and \$7 if you buy them the day of the show. If 200 tickets are sold, and the total amount of money from ticket sales was \$1340, how many tickets were purchased early? A. x + y = 1340 5x + 7y = 200 B.12x = 1340 x + y = 200 C. x + y = 200 5x + 7y = 1340 D. x + y = 200 7x + 5y = 1340

Tickets purchased early = 5\$ Tickets purchased on day of show = 7\$ Total number of tickets = 200 Total money from tickets = 1340\$ The two equations will be: x + y = 200 5x + 7y = 1340 Which is choice C.
