    Student Tickets = x General Tiickets = 350 - x do you understand why the general tickets are 350 - x?

    Hmm because 350 is the total amount of tickets sold and we need to find x?

    Right! Now set up your equation. You know student tickets are $3 & general admission tickets are $5. You also know the total collected is $1450

    3x + 5 (350)-x = 1450 solve the equation for x

    Did you get this when you distributed? 3x + 1750-5x = 1450

    How many student tickets? How many general tickets? Be sure to label your answers...when I taught, I was pretty picky about that
