Children's tickets to a local play cost $1.50 less than adult tickets. At one performance 325 children tickets and 175 adult tickets were sold for a total of $3512.50. How many dollars did an adult ticket cost?

a -150 = c

325 c + 175 a = 351250

325 ( a - 150) + 175 a = 351250 Now....can you solve for 'a' <==== which is the number of adult tix

*** edit ***

Now....can you solve for 'a' <==== which is the price of adult tix

The answer is incorrect though.

What answer did YOU get ? I got the price as 800 ( 8 dollars)
