Ms Lockhart brought 5 tickets to the same game and 2 souvenir for a total $42.00. How much was a ticket to this game?

Let  T  =  price of one ticket

Let  S  =  price of one souvenir

 

Smith:       2T + 1S  =  17.25   --->   multiply by -2   --->   -4T - 2S  =  -34.50

Lockhart:  5T + 2S  =  42.00                                              5T + 2S  =  42.00

(adding down the columns)                                                 T           =    7.50
