Solve this story problem.
796 fans came to the championship game of the Eagles Invitational Basketball Tournament, which produced an admission income of $3042. if the adult admission price was $4.50 and a child's admission price was $3.25, how many adults and how many were present?
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.
