Hi. So, you know that there were 2000 tickets sold on Saturday. You also know that the total amount collected was $6400. To find out how many adult tickets and child tickets were sold, simply follow these steps:

1.)  First find out how many ADULT tickets were sold.  Divide total tickets with price of one ticket.        2000/4= 500 adult tickets were sold.

2.) Now find out CHILD ticket. Same thing as first.     2000/2= 1000 child tickets were sold.
