The cost per adult ticket is $13 and the cost per children ticket is $8

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the cost of adult tickets be ‘x’

Let the cost of children tickets be ‘y’

2x + 3y = 50

2x = 50 – 3y

x = (50 – 3y) /2

3x + 4y = 71

[3(50-3y) /2 ]+ 4y = 71

(150 – 9y) /2 + 4y = 71

150 – 9y + 8y = 142

150 – y = 142

y = 150 – 142

y = 8

x = (50-3y) /2

x = (50-24) /2

x = 13

The cost per adult ticket is $13 and the cost per children ticket is $8
