Let’s suppose all tickets are children’s tickets The sum should be 5$*375=1875$Not enough, we must have$2153: 2153-1875=278 (\$) must be found.

Let’s replace a children ticket with an adult one,

we get one dollar more.

We must thus exchange 278 tickets

There are 278 adult tickets and 375-278=97 children tickets

Proof:  278*6+97*5=2153
