11-8.

When a family with two adults and three children bought tickets for an amusement park, they paid a total of $56.50. 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: 2*x* + 3*y* = 56.50

Write the equation for the other family and solve the system.
