## Answers ( )

Answer:6S + 11C = $120

2S + 1 C = $24

So solve equation 2 for C

C = 24 – 2 S

Subsitute in to eq 1

6S + 11(24-2S) = 120

6S + 264 -22S = 120

264 -16S =120

264 -120 = 16S

S = (264-120)/16 = 144/16 = $9

c = 24 – 2S = 24 – 2×9 = 24-18 = $6

Senior Ticket is $9

Children Ticket is $6
