i need to explain the work and find out Admission to the Pie Eating Contest is $1.50 for children and $4 for adults. On a certain day, 2200 people came to watch and $5050 is collected. How many children and adults attended the Contest?

your 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

- anonymous

so is that for part a ?

- Michele_Laino

yes!

- Michele_Laino

from the second equation I get:
x= 2200-y, now I substitute into the first one so I get:
1.5(2200-y)+4*y=5050
please solve for y

- anonymous

4(2200-x)+1.5*x=5050 ? is that correct ?

- Michele_Laino

yes!

- Michele_Laino

what is x?

- anonymous

the amount of children

- anonymous

now can u help with part C pls and TY

- Michele_Laino

we have to simplify that equation, so we get:
8800-4x+1.5x=5050
please continue

- anonymous

how did u get 8800 ?

- anonymous

i dont get it

- Michele_Laino

4*2200= 8800

- anonymous

oh ok i get it TY

- anonymous

so 3300-1.5x+4y=5500 am i right ?

- Michele_Laino

after that simplification, you should get this equation:
2.5 x= 3750

- Michele_Laino

more steps:
8800-2.5x=5050

- Michele_Laino

2.5 x= 8800-5050

- Michele_Laino

so:
x=3750/2.5=...?

- Michele_Laino

what is:
\[\Large x = \frac{{3750}}{{2.5}} = ...?\]

- anonymous

1500

- Michele_Laino

ok!

- Michele_Laino

now, we have:
y=2200-x=2200-1500=...?

- anonymous

700

- Michele_Laino

that's right!

- anonymous

ty soooooo much can you organize according to the answers to the Parts pls ill right a review and fan and medal you ty again

- Michele_Laino

part A:
the requested system is:
\[\left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}}
{1.5x + 4y = 5050} \\
{x + y = 2200}
\end{array}} \right.\]

- Michele_Laino

part B:
the requested equation is:
\[2.5x = 3750\]

- Michele_Laino

part C:
the requested solution is:
\[\left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}}
{x = 1500} \\
{y = 700}
\end{array}} \right.\]
