Angelo took a group of people to the movies and spent $80 on tickets. Adult tickets cost $10, and child tickets cost $6. The equation to represent his cost is 10A + 6C = $80. If there were 5 children in the group, how many adult tickets did he purchase? Show your work and use a complete sentence to explain your solution in the context of the original problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It gives you an equation to use with all the needed information to solve it. a= adult c=child So basically all you have to do is substitute C with the 5 children presented in the question. 10A+6(5)= 80 (SUBSTITUTE) 10A+30= 80 30 30 (SUBTRACT) 10A= 50   (DIVIDE) 10 10 A= 5 Sooooo 5 adult tickets
