How do you create linear equations to solve word problems?
Lets take up a example
The admission fee at a small fair is $1.50 for children and $4.00 for adults. On a certain day, 2200 people enter the fair and $5050 is collected. How many children and how many adults attended?
number of adults: a
number of children: c
here we are doing the basic declaration
here we framing the equation to solve
finally we are numbers to get the final answer
There were 1500 children and 700 adults.
