Let the number of adults = A

Let the number of children = C

 

A + C = 796

4.50A + 3.25C =3,042, solve for A, C

 

A = 796 - C

4.50[796 - C] + 3.25C =3,042

3,582 - 4.50C + 3.25C = 3,042    subtract 3,582 from both sides

-1.25C = - 540                              divide both sides by -1.25

C = -540 / - 1.25

C = 432 - Number of children

796 - 432 = 364 - Number of adults.
