Tickets to the softball game are $4 for students and $7 for adults. If $795 was made at the last game and 165 people attended, how many students were at the game?

x = # adults                   $ 7x  = revenue from adults

(165-x) = # students     $ 4 (165-x) = revenue from students            summed = $ 795

 

7x          +     4 (165-x)         = 795       solve for x ...the number of adults, then 165-x = # students
