so s + a = 478 we know that s = a 72 plug that into the original equation a  72 + a = 478 add 72 to both sides a + a = 550 2a = 550 a = 275 so there were 275 adult tickets so 275 + s = 478 s = 203 is 203 ...72 fewer than 275? yes it is indeed so those are your answers s = 203 and a = 275 and yes s = student a = adult
