    help with algebra word problem

    Hi everyone I need help in determining the the number of children that went to the restaurant how would I do that?

    The Hungry Heifer diner offers an all-you-can-eat buffet at $25.90 per adult and $17.90 per child. On a particular day, the diner had total buffet revenue of $6,609.40 from 266 customers.

    How many customers were children?

    Adults $25.90
    Child $17.90
    Total customers 266
    Revenue $6 609.40

    Thanks any help would be appreciated

    Let x be adults and y be children.

    x+y = 266

    25.9x+17.9y =6609.4
