Answer:

350 adult tickets were sold.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let's set up some values:

x = adult tickets

x + 50 = student tickets, since there were 50 more student tickets than adult tickets.

Now, let's set up our equation. If these two values add up to 750 tickets, then we can conclude the following:

(x) + (x + 50) = 750

2x + 50 = 750

2x = 700

x = 350 adult tickets. This means there were 400 student tickets sold.
