Jillian’s school is selling tickets for a play. The tickets cost $10.50 for adults and $3.75 for students. The ticket sales for opening night totaled $2071.50. The equation 10.50a + 3.75b = 2071.50, where a is the number of adult tickets sold and b is the number of student tickets sold, can be used to find the number of adult and student tickets. If 82 students attended, how may adult tickets were sold?

10.50a + 3.75b = 2071.50 82 x 3.75 =  307.50 2071.50 - 307.50 = 1764 1764/10.50 = 168 10.50(168) + 3.75(82) = 2071.50 1764 x 307.50 = 2071.50
