A 5000-seat theater has tickets for sale at 26 dollars and 40 dollars. How many tickets should be sold at each price for a sellout performance to generate a total revenue of 145,400 dollars?

5000 seats

x = 26 dollar seats

5000-x = 40 dollar seats

 

26 x    + 40 ( 5000 - x)   = 145400        solve for 'x' the # of 26 dollar seats then # of 40 dollar seats = 5000-x
