    a= adult ticket c=child ticket
    1. 6a+4c=88
    12a+9c=186
    2. so you need to multiply the top number by -2 so you can cancel out the 12a
    -2(6a+4c=88)=. -12a-8c=-176
    3. then you add them all together
    12a+9c=186
    -12a-8c=-176
    ——————————-
    c=10
    4. now you have to find ‘a’
    6a+4(10)=88
    6a+40=88
    -40. -40
    6a=48
    divide both sides by 6
    a=8
    And your final answer should be (8,10)
    hoped this helped:)
