 Question 160273: The admission fee at small fair is \$1.50 for children and \$4.00 for adults. On a certain day, 2,200 people enter the fair and \$5050 is collected. How many children and how many adults attended?Answer by nerdybill(6950)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The admission fee at small fair is \$1.50 for children and \$4.00 for adults. On a certain day, 2,200 people enter the fair and \$5050 is collected. How many children and how many adults attended? . Let A = number of adults then because a total of 2200 people entered: 2200-A = number of children . Since the total collected was 5050: 5050 = 4A + 1.50(2200-A) 5050 = 4A + 3300 - 1.50A 5050 = 2.5A + 3300 1750 = 2.5A 700 = A (number of adults) . number of children: 2200-A = 2200-700 = 1500
