Admission to water park is 14 for adults and $8 per child. During one 15 minute period 40 people enter park. Cashier collects total $416. Write equation to find #of adults that enter the park

Let x be the number of adults.

Let y be the number of children

40 people enter the park

x+y = 40

The collection is 14x+8y

Total collection =416

14x+8y=416

8x+8y =320

6x = 96

x=16

y=40-16 =24

Number of adults =16
