At a school concert, the total value of tickets sold was $1,374. Student tickets sold for $6 and adult tickets sold for $9. The number of adult tickets sold was 5 less than 3 times the number of student tickets. Find the number of student tickets sold, s, by solving the equation

6s + 27s − 45 = 1,374.

OKay. Let's get started.

we will make a system of equations.

s for students.

\(6s + 27s − 45 = 1,374\)

\(27s+6s=1374+45\)-- add 45 to both sides.

\(33s=1419\)-- combine like-terms.

\(s=43\)

s = student tix

6s + 27s − 45 = 1,374. solve for s

33s - 45 = 1374 add 45 to both sides of the equation

33s = 1419 divide both sides by 33

s = 43 number of student tix
