Answer:$6 per child ticket

Step-by-step explanation:Since the adult ticket cost is given, we can multiply that by the amount of adult tickets sold to get the portion of the total money made is adults only.

300 × 10 = $3000 in adult tickets sold

7200 – 3000 = $4200 in children tickets sold

Since we know there were 700 children tickets sold we can divide these amounts to get the cost of a children ticket.

4200 ÷ 700 = $6 per child ticket

Answer:6 dollars per children ticket.

Step-by-step explanation:Sorry if my explanation doesn’t make much sense or you don’t understand it.700x + 300y = 7200

if, y = 10

700x + 300(10) = 7200

700x + 3000 = 7200

– 3000 = -3000

700x = 4200

700x/700 = 4200/700

x = 6
