The Jurassic Zoo charges $13 for each adult admission and $4 for each child . The total bill for the 238 people from a school trip was $1330. How many adults and how many children went to the zoo ?

Let x be the number of adult tickets, and let y be the number of children's tickets. You can then write down the equations, and solve.

x = adult tix 13x = money from adult tix

238 - x = child tix 4 ( 238-x) = money from child tix add money amounts together to equal $ 1330

13x + 4 (238-x) = `1330 solve for 'x' , the number of adults, then number of child = 238-x
