A total of 190 people attended the opening night of a schoolmusical. Student tickets cost $\$4.50$ each while general admission tickets cost $\$6$ each. If total sales were $\$996$, how many general admission tickets were sold?

Let the nuber of student tickets  = 190 - x

Let the number of general admission tickets =  x

 

So 

 

6x + 4.50 (190 -x) =  996  simplify

 

6x  +  855  -  4.50x  =  996

 

6x  -4.50x  =  996  - 855

 

1.50 x   =  141

 

x = 141 / 1.50   =  94   = general adm tickets sold
