 Question 186126This question is from textbook Algebra 1 : Adult tickets for a school musical sold for \$3.50 and student tickets sold for \$2.50. Three hundred twenty-one tickets were sold altogether for \$937.50. How many of each type of tickets were sold?This question is from textbook Algebra 1 Answer by hkelson(7)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!This problem is a matter of trial and error. Start with the adult tickets. This is how I did it and it may or may not work for you because it is time consuming. I started with 120 adult tickets sold. 120 * 3.50 Keep going until you find one that works. In this case I found out that there were 135 adult tickets sold and 186 student tickets. 135 * 3.50 = 472.50 186 * 2.50 = 465.00 I multiplied 135 by 3.50 and got that answer then subtracted 135 from the total of 321 and multiplied that by 2.50. I then added the 2 totals together and came out with the total of \$937.50.
