Students sold 275 tickets for a fundraiser at school. Some tickets are for children and cost $3, while the rest are adult tickets that cost $5, if the total value of all tickets sold was $1,025, how many of each type of ticket was sold? please show a step by step explanation

Adult tix =  a

Child tix  =  (275 - a)

 

Amount from adult tix   = $ 5 a

Ammount for child tix    = $ 3 (275-a)        these amounts sum to $ 1025

 

5 a     +    3 ( 275 - a)   = 1025         solve for 'a' = adult tix     then child tix  =   275 - a
