For every  2  adult tickets, 7 student tickets are sold

the ratio of adult tickets to student tickets  =  2  to  7  .

num of adult tickets / num of student tickets  =   2 / 7

92 / num of student tickets   =   2 / 7

num of student tickets / 92   =   7 / 2

num of student tickets   =   7 / 2 * 92   =   322

322 + 92   =   414

Adult tickets = 2/(2+7) = 2/9 of all tickets

2/9  x  = 92

x = 414 total tickets sold
