2a+2s=32  divide all terms by 2 a+s=16  subtract s from both sides a=16-s Then we are told that: 6a+7s=106, using a found above in this equation gives you: 6(16-s)+7s=106  perform indicated multiplication on the left side 96-6s+7s=106  combine like terms on left side 96+s=106  subtract 96 from both sides s=10, and since a=16-s a=6 So adult tickets cost $6.00 and student tickets cost $10.00.
