x - number of the adults, y  - number of children; The system is: 10 x + 6 y = 3292 x + y = 350   =>   y = 350 - x ---------------------- 10 x + 6 * ( 350 - x ) = 3292 10 x + 2100 - 6 x = 3292 4 x = 3292 - 2100 4 x = 1192 x = 1192 : 4 x = 298 y = 350 - 298 y = 52 Answer: There were 598 adults and 52 children at the showing.
