71 121 191

Step-by-step explanation:

Step-by-step explanation:

Let’s start off with the first equation

5x + y = 60

We need to find what X and Y are.

Let’s try subtracting a few numbers from 60.

Let’s do 60 – 55 = 5

11×5 = 55

11 = Children Ticket Cost

5 = Seniors Ticket Cost

Without them being the same price!

So using the numbers we found, we can now solve the second one

14×5 = 70

11×11 = 121

70 + 121 = 191

There we go!

Hope this helped! Please give brainiest if you can ðŸ™‚
