The second night, 50 more people attended than the first night. How many attended each night? I tried: x+y=350 y=50+x (not sure on this part)Found 3 solutions by jim_thompson5910, LisaJ, Alan3354:Answer by jim_thompson5910(28717)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You have the correct equations. Nice work. Since y = 50+x, we can replace 'y' in the first equation with '50+x' to go from x+y=350 to x + 50+x = 350 From here, solve for x. Then use this solution for x to find the solution for y. Answer by LisaJ(11)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Yes, your two equations are OK. Do you know how to solve the 2 equations together? Answer by Alan3354(31538)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The total attendence for two successive nights was 350. The second night, 50 more people attended than the first night. How many attended each night? -------- a = 1st night's attendance. a + 50 = 2nd night's ------ a + a+50 = 350 a = 150 2nd night = 200
