Gina visited the aquarium with some of her cousins, aunts and uncles.  The group bought 20 admission tickets for \$340.   Adult tickets cost \$20 and children's tickets cost \$15. How many adult and children tickets did the group buy?

let x number of adults and y number of children visited aquarium

hence x +y = 20    ------------(1)

20x+15y =340     --------------( 2)

multiplying 15 in equation 1  we get     15 x +15y =300   -----------(1A)

subtracting Eq 1A  with eq 2 we get

5x =40   or x =40/8 =5

hence y = 20-5 =15
