3. A group of adults and children attend the premiere of the ballet. An adult’s ticket cost \$14.00 each and a child’s ticket cost \$7.00 each. The total ticket sales equaled \$420.00 a) Write an equation that represents the possible number of adult’s and children who attended. Assign variables: Let, a = the number of adults who attended c = the number of children who attended Set equal to the total 14a + 7c = 420

3. A group of adults and children attend the premiere of the ballet. An adult’s ticket cost \$14.00 each and a child’s ticket cost \$7.00 each. The total ticket sales equaled \$420.00 b) If 40 children attended, how many adults attended? 14a + 7c = 420 Notice: c = the # of children who attended. Let, c = 40 14a + 7(40) = 420 Substitute 14a = 420 Simplify – 280 – 280 Subtract 14a = 140 Divide 14 14 a = 10 a = the # of adults who attended. 10 adults attended
