Kim’s school is selling tickets for a play. On the first day of ticket sales the school sold 7 seniors citizen tickets and 14 student tickets for a total of $133. The school took in $89 on the second day by selling 8 senior citizen tickets and 7 student tickets. Find the price of a senior citizen ticket and the price of a student tickets.

Let the price of a Senior's ticket = S

Let the price of a student's ticket =T

 

7S +14T = $133..........................(1)

8S + 7T  = $89...........................(2)

Use elimination or substitution to solve for S and T and you should get:

 

S = $5 - Senior price of each ticket.

T = $7 - Student price of each ticket.
