Hi Lila,
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
We know that between seniors and regulars 50 tickets were sold
equation 2
The amount of each ticket sold multiplied by their cost will equal the total gate receipt amount.
