The school that Alexis goes to is selling tickets to a Dance performance. On the first day of ticket sales the school sold 3 adult tickets and 1 child ticket for a total of 38.  The school took in 52 on the second day by selling 3 adult tickets and 2 child tickets. Find the price of an adult ticket and the price of a child ticket.

Given:

3a + c = 38

3a+ 2c = 52       by selling ONE more child ticket they made 14 more dollars

                                 so c = 14

Plug this into one of the equations    3a + (14) = 38    to find a = $8
