The next family in line, with four children and one adult, paid $49.50. Find the adult and child ticket prices by writing and solving a system of equations. Homework Help ✎

Write an equation for each family, where x = the price per adult and y = the price per child.

The equation for the first family is: 2x + 3y = 56.50
Write the equation for the other family and solve the system.
