18 tickets were sold
The sum of the child tickets, C, and the adult tickets, A, is 28.
The cost per child's ticket is $2.50 and the cost per adult's ticket is $3.75, and the total cost was $82.50.
Multiply the first equation by - 3.75 and use the method of elimination to directly solve for C:
-3.75C-3.75A=-105, which can be added to the second equation in order to eliminate the C variable:
2.5C + (-3.75C) + 3.75A + (-3.75A) = 82.5 + (-105), which becomes:
-1.25C=-22.5, so C=18
