# Please u can write a system of equation to the situation?

## the school that Stefan goes to is selling to a play. the first day they sell 3 senior tickets and 1 child ticket for a total of $38 . The second day they sell 3 senior tickets and 2 child tickets for a total of$52

$3 s + c = 38$

$3 s + 2 c = 52$

#### Explanation:

First let’s define some variables:

• $s \setminus \rightarrow$ a senior ticket
• $c \setminus \rightarrow$ a child ticket

Now we can represent the first situation.

$\textcolor{red}{3}$ senior tickets and $\textcolor{b l u e}{1}$ child ticket costing color(green)($38) in all can be represented by: $\textcolor{red}{3 s} + \textcolor{b l u e}{1 c} = \textcolor{g r e e n}{38}$So that’s the first equation in the system. To find the second, we do the same thing: $\textcolor{red}{3}$senior tickets and $\textcolor{b l u e}{2}$child tickets costing color(green)($52) in all can be represented by:

$\textcolor{red}{3 s} + \textcolor{b l u e}{2 c} = \textcolor{g r e e n}{52}$

And that’s the second equation.
