Suppose there are two types of tickets to a show: advance and same day. The combined cost of one advance ticket and one same day ticket is $60. For one performance, 20 advance tickets and 40 same day tickets were sold. The total amount paid for the tickets was $2000. What was the price of each kind of ticket?

Using system of equations, we get

a+s=60

20a+40s=2000

a=60-s

1200-20s+40s=2000

20s=800

s=40

a+40=60

a=20

Advance Tickets are $20, Same Day Tickets are $40
