Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay lets think of our unknowns as variables. Lets just easily calls those variables x & y. What we don't know is how much adults paid and how much a student paid. What we do know is their cost. I can tell you our goal here is to solve a two linear equations. I'll help you find the first equation from the first part of the question, and i bet you'll be able to get the second one. \[2x+5y=77\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and since one student cost $9, then we can figure out what the adult cost since \[2\times \text{ adult price}+5\times \$9=\$77\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0of if you prefer \[2\times \text{ adult price}+7\times \$9=\$95\] either way
