    These are all the same kind of question. So I will help with one, and u use it as a template.

    1. x = ounces of 30%

    .3x + .7(70) = .58(x+70)

    .3x + 49 = .58x + 40.6

    .28x = 8.4

    x = 30 ounces

    A.) an entire of 456 tickets have been offered, so a + s = 456. the quantity of funds produced from each and each style of value ticket is its value expanded by utilising what number have been offered. consequently, the quantity of funds produced from the person tickets on my own is $3.50 * a = 3.5a funds. Likewise, the quantity of funds produced from the pupil tickets on my own is $a million * s = s funds. the entire value ticket sales equals $1131, so 3.5a + s = 1131. subsequently, your device of equations is: a + s = 456 3.5a + s = 1131 B.) Multiply the 1st equation by utilising -a million so that's -a - s = -456. Now upload this equation to the 2d equation to unravel for a by using removing s from the ensuing equation: (3.5a + s = 1131) + (-a - s = -456) = (2.5a = 675) 2.5a = 675 (divide the two sides by utilising 2.5) a = 270 And you are able to now resolve for s. a + s = 456 (replace 270 for a) 270 + s = 456 (subtract 270 from the two sides) s = 186 answer: 270 person tickets and 186 pupil tickets
