Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Adults + Children = 1.326 6a + 4c = 1.326 This equation will give you the adults and children revenue The total number of people were 289 Adults + Children = 289 So, the system becomes 6a + 4c = 1,326 a + c = 289 now just solve the system.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a + c = 289 i got bad news, Lauren, if you're having trouble solving for a, then you're really going to hate the process of elimination and substitution. a + c = 289. So solve, do the opposite. So a  c + c = 289  c a = (289  c) Now plug it into either equation and solve for a, then plug that back into it and completely solve c.
