Let senior citizen ticket x and child ticket y

According to question, equations are

------->5x+7y=145   --------2

Put value of y in 2




-9x= -135

x= -135/-9 = 15

Put Value of x in y= 40-2x

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
