Question

In a concert, tickets are sold for children and adults. A child ticket costs $5 while an adult ticket costs twice as much as a child ticket. In total, there were 310 tickets sold in total and a sum of $2350 was accumulated from the tickets. How many child tickets were sold?

Answer

If u child tickets were sold, then there were (310 – u ) adult tickets were sold.

5u + 10(310 – u ) = 2350

5u = 3100 – 2350

5u = 750

u = 150

So 159 child tickets were sold.

 

Check : 150 * 5 + 160 * 10 = 750 + 1600 = 2350   Checked
