let a = the number of adults let c = the number of children we know that the total number of children and adults is 27, so a + c = 27 the total amount of money collected is the adult ticket price*a + the child ticket price*c = 60 the adult ticket price is $4 the child's ticket price is $1 a + c = 27 4a + c = 60 solve for a and c

B) 16 children and 11 adults Equation 1: a + c = 27 Equation 2: 4a + c = 60 If we plug the numbers into each equation we get: 11+16=27 4(11)+16--> 44+16= 60
