then it would look like 3775= 3x+8(2x)+5z
tester97
  • tester97
then you would ditribute the 8 to 2x so it would look like 3775=3x+16x+5z
tester97
  • tester97
then you would put 3 for x and 5 for z then you would solve

after substititing y I have the two equations 800 = 3x + z and 3775 = 19x + 5z but thats as far as I can get because if I try to solve by elimination (multiply equation 1 by -5 and solve for x) then x = a negative number @tester97

ok now put 3 for x and 5 for z so it would look like this 800=3(3)+ (5) 3775=19(3)+5(5) now try to solve it now

But x doesnt = 3, 3 is the cost of x. x is the amount of tickets of children sold
