complete question:5. At a recent Bach concert, total ticket sales were $1,629 Adult tickets cost $9.00 and youth tickets cost $6.00. The number of adult tickets sold was sixteen more than three times the number of youth tickets. How many of each were sold?Answer:5.number of adult ticket sold = 151number of youth ticket sold = 456.area of the garden = 60ft²perimeter of the garden = 40 ftlength of hypotenuse = 17 ftlength of the other leg = 15 ftStep-by-step explanation:5 .Total ticket sold = $1,629

let

number of adult ticket sold = a

number of youth ticket sold = b

a = 3b + 16

a – 3b = 16…………..(i)

Total sales

9a + 6b = 1629……..(ii)

Combine the equations

a – 3b = 16…………..(i)

9a + 6b = 1629……..(ii)

make a subject of the formula in equation(i)

a = 16 + 3b

Insert the value of a in equation (ii)

9(16 + 3b) + 6b = 1629

144 + 27b + 6b = 1629

33b = 1629 – 144

33b = 1485

b = 1485/33

b = 45Insert the value of b in equation (i)

a – 3b = 16…………..(i)

a – 3(45) = 16

a – 135 = 16

a = 16 + 135

a = 1516.The garden is in the shape of a right angle triangle. one leg is 8 ft.

let

a = 8 ft

b = x ft

c = (x + 2) ft

Using Pythagoras theorem

a² + b² = c²

8² + x² = (x + 2)²

64 + x² = (x + 2)(x + 2)

64 + x² = x² + 2x + 2x + 4

64 + x² = x² + 4x + 4

64 = 4x + 4

60 = 4x

x = 60/4

x = 15Therefore,a = 8 ftb = 15 ftc = 17 ftPerimeter of the triangle = 8 ft + 15 ft + 17 ft = 40 ftArea of the triangle = 1/2 × base × height

Area of the triangle = 1/2 × 8 × 15

Area of the triangle = 1/2 × 120

Area of the triangle = 120/2

Area of the triangle = 60 ft²
