Solution to the Creative Solutions Blog

What I did was i entered 2 equations into graphmatica:
35y+20x=940000
and
x+y=36500
After i entered these 2 equations in, the number of tickets sold for $35 was the y coordinate and the number of tickets for $20 was the x coordinate. These 2 coordinates were the ordered pairs where the 2 lines intersected.
The first equation (35y+20x=940000) was for the total revenue. Y was the variable for the number of people that bought the $35 tickets and x was the variable for the number of people that bought the $20 tickets.
The second equation (x+y=36500) was for the number of people at the game. So i knew that the ordered pairs where the 2 lines intersected would be the number of people who bought each ticket (y for the $35 and x for the $20) because it just worked out that way.
