tickets cost $3 and general admission tickets cost $5. You sell 350
tickets and collect $1,450. How many student tickets did you sell?

ok this is also going to be a system. let x = student ticket and y = general admissions
x + y = ?
actually x = # of student ticket and y = # of general admissions
Okay got it
x+y = 350
3x + 5y = 1450
Now we need to solve the system.
Uhmm we have to solve for Y? my memory is sucky :P
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
Therefore you sold 150 student tickets. <-- Final answer
Sorry that took so long... Got it?
