• I was looking for a walk-through of this problem: an adult ticket cost \$2.50 and a child ticket cost \$1. if \$498.60 was collected for 100 tickets how many child tickets were sold? thank you!
• This is not even possible because even if you sold all adult tickets for 2.50 (maximum amount you could have), 100 tickets would be 250 dollars. Please check to make sure you have the correct numbers. Either have less money collected or more for each ticket.

• The problem was so obvious but confusing at the same time. The question was vague and the scenario was giving useless information. Like, is this how math works? Agree?
• WHAT IS 100000x2000000= MONEY 20or 100000
