Let x= the number of coach tickets, and let y=number of first class tickets.

We know that there are x number of coach tickets and y number of first place tickets, and their total is equal to 15

x+y=15

We know that

320x=the cost of coach ticket per per person

1030y= the cost of first class tickets per person

And that the total amount spent was 10480

Thus

320x+1030y=10480

I showed the work in this picture

We find there are 7 coach tickets, and 8 first class tickets.
