  1. The equations 5x + 2y = 48 and 3x + 2y = 32 represent the money collected from movie sales during one showing. If x represents the cost for each adult ticket and y represents the cost for each student ticket, what is the cost for each adult ticket?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

5x+2y =48

3x+2y =32 

Subtracting second equation from first





2y =32-24 =8

y= 4

x=cost of each adult ticket = 8 


y= cost of each student ticket = 4
