Admission to the zoo is $6 for children and $9 for adults. On a certain day, 1480 people go to the zoo and $10,500 is collected.
We can write two equations:
\[10,500 = 6c + 9a\]where \(c\) is the number of children and \(a\) is the number of adults
\[1480 = c+a\]
In other words, count of children + adults is 1480, and the money taken in totals 10,500 if we get $6 per child and $9 per adult.
Know how to solve that system of equations?

- DARTHVADER2900

Yeah, he is right

- whpalmer4

Going with an answer you don't even know how to check, much less get, is not the recipe for success...even if it is correct.

- whpalmer4

Don't you want to know how to solve these yourself, so you have a fighting chance on the test?

@Vickyisthesmartone123 This is exactly the same as the one before. Set up 2 equations with 2 variables and solve it :) Just like @whpalmer4 showed.
