A school held a kiddie carnival to raise money for the PTA. Admission for adults was 8 dollars, and admission for children was 5 dollars. In the end, 87 people attended the carnival, and they raised 468 dollars. How many adults attended the carnival?

a = adults

c = children = 87 - a

 

$8 a      +  $5 (87-a)    =    468

3a = 33

a = 11       c = 87-a = 76
