    Say the number of adult tickets is x. That means the number of student tickets is 71 less, making it x - 71.

    We can add the number of student and adult tickets, because we know their sum is 479.

    x + x - 71 = 479

    Now, we solve for x.

    2x - 71 = 479

    2x = 550

    x = 275

    So, there were 275 adult tickets sold.
