the concessions stand at the pee-wee hockey tournament sold 92 beverages one Sat. Their total revenue was $192. Coffee sells for 2.20 per cup; tea sells for 1.80 per cup. write an equation or system of equations

We can write 2 equations for this word problem, one for the number of beverages and one for revenue.

Let's let C = # of coffee drinks and T = # of tea drinks

For the number of beverages, we know that:

C + T = 92

For total revenue, we know that the cost will depend on how much of each beverage gets sold, so:

$2.20C + $1.80T = 192
