Answer:

From what I can see, this problem doesn't have any unique solution.

Explanation:

Call the cost of an adult ticket #x# and the cost of a student ticket #y#.

#y = x - 6#

Now, we let the number of tickets sold be #a# for the students and #b# for the adults.

#ay = 1800#

#bx= 3000#

We are left with a system of #3# equations with #4# variables which has no unique solution.
