    ok i would solve this like this. 624 divided by 2 = 312 and it says 74 more students tickets were sold than the adults then i would do 312 - 74 = 238 so the answer i would say is (There were 238 Adult tickets sold)

    let x = adult tickets sold number student tickets sold = x + 74 so we have x + x + 74 = 624 solve for x
