Julie sold 500 tickets for the spring musical. Students tickets cost $2 and adult tickets cost $5. Julie's sales totaled $1789. How many students and how many adult tickets did Julie sell?

Let x = number of adult tickets, the  500-x = child tickets

 

$5 * x   + $2 * (500 - x) = $1789

5x + 1000 - 2x = 1789

3x = 789

x = adults = 263

children = 500 - x = 237
