Grandstand ticket = \$380.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the price of One grandstand ticket be X dollars and the price of One general admission ticket be Y dollars.

Then according to question,

6X + 2 Y = 2720  -(1)

Also,

4X + 4 Y = 2400 -(2)

Simplifying second equation we get ,

X + Y = 600 , Thus , X = 600 – Y .

Put X = 600 – Y in Equation 1.

So,

3600 – 6Y + 2Y = 2720

4Y = 880

Y = \$220

Thus, X = 600 – 220 = \$380.

So,

Cost of grandstand ticket is \$380 and cost of general admission ticket is \$220.
