our jazz band is selling tickets for a school dance. Student tickets are $8.00 and adult tickets are $15.00. If you sold 167 tickets for a total revenue of $1630, how many of each ticket did you hand sell?

    \(8st+15ad=1630 \)

    \(st+ad=167\)            | * 8

 - \(\underline{8st+8ad=1336}\)    

   \(7ad=234\) 

   \(ad=42\)

   \(st=167-42\)

   \(st=125\)

 

125 tickets were sold to students and 42 tickets to adults.
