    Answer:

    • 40 adult tickets
    • 28 children’s tickets

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let “a” represent the number of adult tickets sold. (We like to let the variable represent the higher-value item.)

    Total sales was then …

      11a +6(68-a) = 608

      5a + 408 = 608 . . . . . eliminate parentheses

      5a = 200 . . . . . . . . . . .subtract 408

      a = 40 . . . . . . . . . . . . . divide by 5

    40 adult tickets were sold, and 28 children’s tickets were sold.
