    Concert Tickets

    At a concert, main floor seats sell for $25.00 and Upper Level seats sell for $12.00. There were 50,000 people in attendance and the concert total ticket sales is $1,112,000. How many main floor seats and upper level seats were sold?

    MY SET UP:

    Let m = main floor seats

    Let u = upper floors seats

    25m + 12u = 1,112,000

    m + u = 50, 000

    Is this correct?

    Yes you are correct, just solve that system for m and u now

    I am so happy to have the right equations. This has been my biggest problem in math--->creating equations from the given information in word problems.
