Hi Lila,
 
x=seniors
y=regulars
 
x paid $10
y paid $15
 
The first equation is for the number of tickets sold and the second one will deal with the prices.
 
------------------
 
equation 1
 
x+y=50
 
We know that between seniors and regulars 50 tickets were sold
 
 
equation 2
 
10x+15y=650
 
The amount of each ticket sold multiplied by their cost will equal the total gate receipt amount.
