Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your problem can be modeled by the subsequent system: \[\left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {1.5x + 4y = 5050} \\ {x + y = 2200} \end{array}} \right.\] the first equation comes from the total money collected, the second one comes from the total number of person who wants to assist to the performance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from the second equation I get: x= 2200y, now I substitute into the first one so I get: 1.5(2200y)+4*y=5050 please solve for y
