  1. Let C be the number of children tickets and A be the number of adult tickets.

    6A + 4C = 224
    A = 2C

    6A + 4C = 224
    6(2C) + 4C = 224
    12C + 4C = 224
    16C = 224
    C = 14

    Thus, A = 2C = 2(14) = 28

    This means that there were 14 children tickets and 28 adult tickets.

  2. a = 2 c

    6 a + 4 c = 224

    substituting for a ... 6 (2 c) + 4 c = 224 ... 12 c + 4 c = 224

    solve for c , then substitute back to find a

    Thank you for the instruction. This website is not for cheating. When you cheat, you do not remember what you are learning about. Therefore, by cheating you will fail the standardized testing. Once you do fail the standard testing, your school will see that and say "Due to fails, Virtual is no longer an option." you will then proceed to go to school in a mask, (like other students) and lose 23% of your brain power because your brain will not get oxygen. If you need all that to realize the issue of cheating, continue. Once you lose 46% (2 years) of your brain power, you will look back and ask why you cheated. Cheating is not a joke, now more than ever. Please, I beg you DO NOT CHEAT FOR YOUR OWN SANITY!

    Thank you for the attention that is probably unnecessary. This website is for cheating. When you cheat, you do remember what you are learning about. 🤣 Therefore, by cheating you will pass the standardized testing. Once you pass the standard testing, your school will see that and say "Congratulations! You are WAY too smart for virtual learning, so we are putting you to an advanced public school!" You will then proceed to go to school in a mask, (to cheat) and GAIN 23% of brainpower because your brain will cheat. If you need all that to realize the benefit of cheating, continue. Once you gain 46% (2 years) of brainpower, you will look back and ask why you didn't help other students cheat. Cheating is a joke, now more than ever. Please, I beg you CHEAT FOR YOUR OWN SANITY!
