Can You Solve the Problem?

Question:

A movie is sold to student for $3 each and to adult twice the price, if total 200 tickets were sold, and $900 was collected, how many students tickets are sold?

Solution:

Let S=number of student tickets, then the income from students is 3S,since 200 tickets sold, we know there are 200-S adult tickets sold, income from adults is 6(200-s), and we have total $900, thus

900=3s+6(200-s), solve for s, what is it?

you may solve using your own method, let me know if you got it, have fun..

Happy Tuesday Ahead,
