The Smith family went to the fair they purchased 2 adult tickets and 1 child ticket for 25.50. The Farley family also went to the fair they purchased 3 adult tickets and 2 child tickets for 41 dollars. How much was an adult ticket?

let a = adult ticket and c = child ticket.

2a + c = 25.50

3a + 2c = 41

Use system of equations..

4a + 2c = 51

3a + 2c = 41

-----------------

a = 10

2a + c = 25.50

2(10) + c = 25.50

c = 5.50

An adult ticket is $10.00
