Math Question 11 Grade?

A movie theater has two ticket prices; $8 for adults and $5 for children. If the box office took in $4116 from the sales of 600 tickets, how many tickets of each kind were sold?

    try this:
    8x + 5y = 4116 (where x is adult, y is child)
    x + y = 600 ( total ticket from adult and children)
    solve as system of equations ie multiply second equation by 8 so as to wipe out the x’s, solve for y and sub that value in either equation to find x. Helpful?
