I find word problems confusing!!!

#1 The sponsors of a Boys and Girls Club took some members to a play and bought seven more tickets for members than for adults. The members' tickets cost $1.25 and the adults' tickets cost $2.75. If a total of $28.75 was paid for all the tickets, how many members went to the play?

#2 The total receipts for a college basketball game were $674, with a student ticket selling for $1.25 and a non-students ticket selling for 2.75. If there were 136 more students then non-students in attendance, how many people were at the game?

2.75 + 1.25(n+136)=674

2.75 + 1.25+170=674

172.75 + 1.25n=674

1.25n=501.25

n=401

There were 401 people at the game???
