Five kids and three adults are going to the circus. Kid's tickets are on sale for only half the price of adult tickets. The total cost is $65. How much is one kids ticket? How much is one adult ticket?

Let the price of an adult ticket = A

So....the price of a child's ticket= A/2

So

no. of kids * ticket price + No. of adults * ticket price = 65

5(A/2) + 3A = 65

(5/2)A + (6/2)A = 65

(11/2)A = 65

A = 65 * (2) / 11 ≈ $11.82 = adult price

A/2 ≈ $5.91 = child's price
