 Let x = number of student tickets sold.
 
Let y = number of adult tickets sold.
 
we cannot sell a negative number of tickets
therefore, x and y values have to be ≥ 0. T
he value of all the student tickets is 1x since they are $1 each
the value of all the adult tickets is 2y because they are $2 each. 


Therefore their total value have to be at least $250 which will be writtenas

1x + 2y ≥ 250.

Let the number of students tickets to be sold be a
And that of adult tickets be b

So, it would be
a + 2b ≥ 250
