    Answer:

    • 207.5 adult
    • 52.5 children

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If “a” represents the number of adult smoothies sold, then 260-a is the number of smoothies sold to children. The total revenue is …

      3a +1(260-a) = 675

      2a +260 = 675 . . . . . . eliminate parentheses

      a + 130 = 337.5 . . . . . . divide by 2

      a = 207.5 . . . . . . . . smoothies sold to adults

      260-a = 52.5 . . . . . smoothies sold to children

    For the given numbers, this is the way it works out. The “half” values suggest there is a typo somewhere, possibly in the curriculum material. Talk to your teacher about this one.
