Hi there...
 
Problem...:
--------------------
Tickets sold in total = "98"
"Adult-Tickets" = "$12,-" each.
"Senior-Tickets" = "$8,-" each.
--------------------
"How many "Adult-Tickets" were sold?"
--------------------


As a point of refference, here are the extremes...
--------------------
((88 "Adult-Tickets")+(2 "Senior-Tickets"))=$1072,-
((131 "Senior-Tickets")+(2 "Adult-Tickets"))=$1072,-
--------------------


I hope that helped a bit?



Kind regards

Instead of being all wordy:

 

x = adult tx      revenue from adult tx =    12 x

98-x = senior tx    revenue from senior tx = 8 (98-x)     summed together these equal 1072

 

12x     +    8 (98-x)  =  1072       solve for x = adult tix     then   98-x = senior tx
