What is the total number of adults and the total number of children attending?

$$\text{Let number of adults =a} \\ \text{Let number of children =c}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline a+c &=& 212 \\ \mathbf{c} &=& \mathbf{212-a} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline 6a+4c &=& 1128 \\ 6a +4(212-a) &=& 1128 \\ 6a + 4*212-4a &=& 1128 \\ 6a + 848-4a &=& 1128 \\ 2a &=& 1128-848 \\ 2a &=& 280 \quad | \quad : 2 \\ \mathbf{a} &=& \mathbf{140} \\\\ \mathbf{c} &=& \mathbf{212-a} \\ c &=& 212-140 \\ \mathbf{c} &=& \mathbf{72} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

The total number of adults is 140
The total number of children is 72 Jan 25, 2020
