Answer:128 adult tickets were sold.

Step-by-step explanation:We can form an equation using the information we have, let x be the number of adult tickets sold:

3x + x = 512

4x = 512

x = 128

x is the number of adult tickets sold as the number of student tickets was three times more so the 3x was the student tickets.

So 128 adult tickets were sold.

Answer:384 student tickets and 128 adult tickets

Step-by-step explanation:S for student and A for adult

s+a=512

s=3a

3a+a=512

4a=512

a=128

s=384
