Last Sunday, we noticed that our dance show 1000 tickets were sold. For an adult, the cost of a ticket was two dollars and for a child it was one dollar. When all was said and done, we had a total mount of $1850. Write the number of adult tickets and children’s tickets that were sold on Sunday.

Let the number of adult tickets sold =A
Number of children's tickets sold      =1000 - A

 

2A + 1 * [1000 - A] =1850, solve for A
A = 850 adult tickets were sold.
1000 - 850 =150 children's tickets were sold
