Cost of ticket for adults = $11

cost of tickets for kids = $3

Assume, number of tickets sold to adults is 'a' and number of tickets sold to kids is 'k'

therefore, a+k = total number of tickets sold

and, 11*a + 3*k = total receipts

thus, 

a+k = 1008..........equation 1

11a+3k = 6848.........equation 2

solve equation 1 and 2, 

a = 478, k = 530

so, 

number of adult tickets sold is 478

number of kids tickets sold is 530
