  1. Answer:

    B . 1500 children and 700 adults

    Step-by-step explanation:

    How many children and how many adults attended?

    create an equation

    make use of variables:

    children –x

    adults –y

    1.5x + 4y = 5050

    x + y = 2200

    now make use of the options given and place them into the equation .

    lets try the first one

    1.5 * (700) + 4*(1500) = 7050

    HENCE :  A IS WRONG

    HENCE : B IS CORRECT..
