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
