So, back in high school I learned the algorithm I needed to use in order to solve this problem. Unfortunately, I haven't needed the algorithm since high school and now I can't remember what it is!
I have a few known values, but two unknown values. I need to find the unknown. Here are the known values:
Tickets Sold 176
Adult Ticket $53
Child Ticket $31
Total Gross Revenue $6875.17
I need to find how many adults and how many children there were. I know I can't get an accurate answer because some sales had a 6% tax applied, but a best guess is better than nothing.
Thanks in advance!
