You are selling tickets for a high school basketball game. Student tickets cost $3 and general admission tickets cost $5. You sell 350 tickets and collect $1,450. How many student tickets did you sell? Hey do you also know how to do this?

    ok this is also going to be a system. let x = student ticket and y = general admissions x + y = ?

    x+y = 350 3x + 5y = 1450 Now we need to solve the system.

    haha ok: x+y = 350, solve it for y y = 350 - x Then plug into the second equation and solve for x value: 3x + 5(350 -x) = 1450 3x + 1750 - 5x = 1450 -2x + 1750 = 1450 -1750 on both sides -2x = -300 /-2 on both sides x = 150 Now plug in to first equation: 150 + y = 350 y = 200
