The school drama club sold 2,400 tickets to a play and made 9,000 dollars from the ticket sales. Student tickets, x, were 3 dollars and adult tickets, y, were 5 dollars.  Create a system of two equations to represent this situation, and solve the system.

x+y=2400                           y = 2400-x

3x + 5y = 9000

 

Substitute the blue equation into the second eqution , solve for x      then you can solve for y by substituting

   this value of x into one of the equations
