1. ## [SOLVED] Writing sytems of equations?

At the school play on Friday night, 120 tickets were sold. Student tickets cost $5 each and Adult tickets cost$7 each. The total sales for the evening were $670. How many of each type of ticket were sold? How would I write a system of equations that represent this problem? 2. Hi deekay930 Let : x = student ticket and y = adult ticket So : 1) total 120 tickets means that ..... (related to x and y) 2) total money$670 means that....(related to x and y, if you sold x @ $5 and y @$7 )
