number of adults = x

number of children = x+44

number of seniors = total number of tickets - adults - children = 718-x-(x+44)=674-2x

Ticket sales = $21*adults + $6*children +$14*seniors

9486 = 21x + 6(x+44) + 14(674-2x)

9486 = 21x + 6x + 264 + 9736 - 28x

9486 = -x + 9700

214 = x = number of adults

number of children = x+44 = 214+44 = 258
