System of Equations (Help! Urgent!)

I came across this question but I could not figure it out. Could you please help me and explain how to find the answer? Thanks!

Brenda's school is selling tickets to a spring musical. On the first day of ticket sales the school sold 3 adult tickets and 9 child tickets for a total of $75. The school earned $67 on the second day by selling 8 adult tickets and 5 child tickets. What is the price of one adult ticket and one child ticket?

Write and solve a system of equations to figure out the price of a child ticket and an adult ticket. Define your variables.
