A group of 8 people went to the movies. tickets are $6 each for adults and $3 each for kids. together they pay $33 for the tickets. there are _______ adults in that group and _______ kids. can someone explain how to solve this in words for an essay.
If we let 'x' equal the number of adult tickets then 8-x is the number of kid tickets. Te revenue from adult tickets would be $8 times x and the revenue from kid tickets would be $3 times 8-x. Summed together the revenues would equal $ 33. Then you solve for 'x' the number of adult tickets and 8-x the number of kid tickets.
