The admission fee at an amusement park is 1.5 dollars for children and 4 dollars for adults. On a certain day, 281 people entered the park, and the admission fees collected totaled 734 dollars. How many children and how many adults were admitted?

Let c= # children then 281-c = # Adults

1.5 c = money from child tix 4(281-c) = money from adult tix

1.5 c + 4(281-c) = 734

1.5 c =1124 - 4c = 734

-2.5c = -390

c=156 children

281-c = 125 Adults
