 Question 432969: my question is this: There were 44,000 people at a ball game in Los Angeles. The day's receipts were \$369,000. How many people paid \$13.00 for reserved seats and how many paid \$6.00 for general admission? in the class, we are working with using systems of equations to combine equations and eliminate one variable to figure out the other variable ie: x + y = 5 x - y = -9 2x = -4 x = -2 and those types of problems. for this question, i can not figure out what to use as variables for either side of the equation. the other word question we were given gave 6 variables, so we were able to plug in a numerical value to each section. here- theres only 4 numbers. is this a different type of question entirely, or- am i just missing the point entirely? thanks in advance!Answer by belle3833(46)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x be the number of people that paid\$13 and y be the number of people that paid \$6 so x+y=44000 (the total number of people that attended) 13x+6y=369000 (total revenue) These are your two equations. YOu need to solve them simulateously. If you have problems completing it from here please message me
